Victorian Britain is traditionally remembered as a nation in industrial development. However, beyond the 'satanic mills' overlooking the Dickensian slums alongside teeming docks or in burgeoning industrial cities, blossomed a new world beside the old agricultural and fishing Britain. Victorian Britain and Ireland in Colour consists of 350 colour images that show some of today's most familiar landmarks as they looked in the time of penny newspapers, as well as illustrating the daily life of the time. In their own time the realistic scenes captured in these 'photochroms' were greeted with astonishment. Today they still stand comparison with modern colour photography for their depth and richness. This book recreates a bygone age in an impressive fashion and is a must for local historians, lovers of Victoriana, and those interested in the history of photography.
