The Victorians and Edwardians at Play Paperback / softback
by John Hannavy
Part of the Shire Library series
A picture can say a thousand words and the images caught on camera during the Victorian and Edwardian periods provide a fascinating insight into the lives of Britons during this time.
Take a step back between 1840 and 1910 and explore the pastimes, hobbies, sports and other entertainments enjoyed by the Victorians and Edwardians through the rich variety of photographs and vintage postcards in this beautiful album.
A world we usually see in monochrome or sepia is presented here in vivid colour, bringing the Victorian and Edwardian people a little closer to us. 128 pages are packed with images of people on the golf course, playing croquet and tennis, sports days and football matches.
We see visits to the zoo, cruises on river boats and paddle steamers, fairground and pleasure beach excursions, days at the races and other, more unusual pursuits, all of which tell the story of social life 100 to 160 years ago.
Go on, take a look!
