RuralEngland avaThe Victorian era in England lasted from 1837 to 1901. It was the period of political and social reforms and the Industrial Revolution. By the way, due to the Industrial Revolution, there was a tendency of people moving to big cities where workers were always needed. And in rural areas, life was poor and hard. These photos will help you see the real life in rural Victorian England in the mid-19th century. Ordinary people often wore worn clothing, patched and full of holes. But, of course, there were wealthier landlords, with their toppers, nice suits, and white shirts.

The photographer is William Morris Grundy, London Stereoscopic Company, 1857.
