Europe in the Late 19th Century Through Amazing Photos

The 19th century witnessed a globally dominant Europe. Empires expanded, colonies amassed – all pushed energetically forward by the Industrial Revolution.

Abuse and inequality were excused as a necessary part of ‘civilizing’ savage peoples. The gradual ending of slavery was followed by new forms of intolerance and racism.
