Life of England During Edwardian Era Through Amazing Photos

Edwardian Britain, the era, later known as the ‘Golden Age’, promoted ‘leisurely’ time. Fondly remembered for long hazy summer days, with the rich enjoying endless garden parties and banquets. Of course, this is the period before the outbreak of two awful World Wars.

The working class were treated as humans, not as machines. There remained a huge difference in the financial standing between the classes however. The nation saw the demise of child labour. The Boy Scout movement, founded in 1907 by Lord Baden Powell, encouraged boys to have a sense of duty and good citizenship.

These amazing photos from John Rochon show what life of England looked like during Edwardian era.
