'What the Victorians Did For Us', by Adam Hart-Davis
Hardcover - 224 pages. September 2001. ISBN: 0747210101
The Victorian era was a time of extraordinary prosperity and development in Britain. Britain was a world leader in steam engines, iron and steel production, cotton and woollen mills and international trade; an explosion of power and pride that was celebrated in the Great Exhibition of 1851. This is a celebration of Victorian achievements and a reflection of the fact that we still live in a Victorian world.
