Mood Board of Victorian Styles

One book has proved very useful for this purpose: ‘What the Victorians Did For Us‘; it’s based on a TV series of the same name broadcast on BBC 2 back in 2001. However there are also some really useful web pages out there, yet as I have already mentioned there is a small issue of the Victorian era not being very small. So I shall have to rely in part on the stereo-types of the time to convey some of the style I think. Anyway here is the small collection of ‘Victoriana’:

I think I have a good idea though I just hope I can express it well enough as so far when I have been trying to get it down onto paper it is not coming out the way I see it in my head.
