Bizarre Victorian Era Portraits

The Victorian era of British history was the period of Queen Victoria's reign from 20 June 1837 until her death on 22 January 1901. It was a long period of peace, prosperity, refined sensibilities and national self-confidence. Some scholars date the beginning of the period in terms of sensibilities and political concerns to the passage of the Reform Act 1832. [Wikipedia]

  1. It was a tradition at some time during the Victorian era to have a picture of your child taken. The mother supported her child in a certain postition, especially when it was a baby who could not sit on its own, but the mother herself was hidden by a cloth, so that only the child would be visible on the picture.
