Victorians

In the Victorian era, people flocked to the cities to find work or take up new business opportunities. Some found wealth, others only poverty. For those with money, the home became a haven (place of safety) in a fast-changing world. The comforts of a warm house and good food had never been more important. However, life was uncertain. In the overcrowded cities, disease was always a threat and, if the main wage-earner died, the members of the family could soon find themselves homeless or with no alternative other than the dreaded workhouse.
