I have lurked for a long time, and enjoyed a lot of posts. I haven’t posted anything, really, since I didn’t know what I could add, and didn’t just want to reblog. But I think I will start putting out some images from my collection of Victorian ephemera that hopefully give a sense of the intricacies and (at times) silliness of daily life in my favourite time. I will start tonight with a few ads and items from both The Strand magazine and the Sears catalogue of 1897. I hope you enjoy.
