Lancashire Cotton Times London 1896 Circa 1896: reinventing the wheel The images from 1896 are accompanied by the original text in Round London; the captions for the images from today are mine. All images from the work Round London are part of the author's collection and under my copyright. Some time ago I unearthed the most amazing find in a second-hand bookshop on the Lower Marsh in London, close to Waterloo Station: a well-worn late Victorian work called Round London. Most of the readers would have been members of the middle or upper classes in order to afford a work of this type. And yet the London of today is also a very different beast.

Victorian era Period of British history encompassing Queen Victoria's reign Ideologically, the Victorian era witnessed resistance to the rationalism that defined the Georgian period and an increasing turn towards romanticism and even mysticism with regard to religion, social values, and arts.[2] Terminology and periodisation In the strictest sense, the Victorian era covers the duration of Victoria's reign as Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, from her accession on 20 June 1837—after the death of her uncle, William IV—until her death on 22 January 1901, after which she was succeeded by her eldest son, Edward VII. Her reign lasted for 63 years and seven months, a longer period than any of her predecessors. Political and diplomatic history Early In 1832, after much political agitation, the Reform Act was passed on the third attempt.

The History Of Printing And Ink | Stinkyink Blog Here at Stinkyink, we feel it’s necessary to respect and support those who have got you to where you are in life. And we wouldn’t be the UK’s leading printer cartridge supplier without, you guessed it, printer ink! That’s why we’ve invested significant time and effort into making a comprehensive series of “History of Ink” articles. In the 21st century it is difficult to appreciate how much printing is an accepted part of our everyday lives. Look around you, if you are sat at home you likely have a book or magazine that’s been printed and mass produced; five hundred years ago this type of print would be beyond comprehension, bordering on witchcraft! The Beginning Of Printing Our history begins with ancient cultures using ink for writing and drawing. Prehistoric Europe: In Europe this time period is known as ‘prehistoric’ or a time before written evidence. The Middle East: The Islamic Empires used a writing instrument called a galam which was usually made from a reed. Ancient Egypt: China:

History in Focus: Overview of The Victorian Era (article) Article Overview of the Victorian Era by Anne Shepherd Queen Victoria (1819-1901) was the first English monarch to see her name given to the period of her reign whilst still living (1). For the most part, nineteenth century families were large and patriarchal. Politics were important to the Victorians; they believed in the perfection of their evolved representative government, and in exporting it throughout the British Empire. During the Victorian heyday, work and play expanded dramatically. The progress of scientific thought led to significant changes in medicine during the nineteenth century, with increased specialisation and developments in surgery and hospital building. Whilst this brief overview can only partially summarise some characteristics of the nineteenth century, it does illustrate that society was disparate and that no one feature can serve to give a definitive view of what it meant to be "Victorian".

L'homme et son environnement dans la révolution industrielle - Vidéo - Francetv Éducation Au début du XIXème siècle, en pleine révolution industrielle, émerge l'idée que c'est à travers la croissance économique et donc la maîtrise de la nature que sera résolue la question sociale et qu'on réussira à clore l'ère révolutionnaire. Enfoui sous la terre depuis des millénaires, le charbon, véritable cadeau de la nature, devient le premier combustible de cette révolution. Partout en Europe des usines poussent comme des champignons. En Angleterre, Manchester devient la capitale mondiale du coton. Au milieu du XIXème, la ville, ceinturée par 500 manufactures, est plongée dans le brouillard polluant de ses hauts fourneaux.
