Great stuff Tim. But just been reading on the etiquette of engagements. What a time-consuming business. No wonder Druitt wasn't interested.

Glad you liked it, Robert and Howard. But watch 'Corpse Bride' and see if that isn't the same kind of thing to have to contend with. ;)

Victoriana Magazine Review: A Must-Read for the Victorian Enthusiasts. (http://www.neatorama.com/2007/02/18/victoriana-magazine-review-a-must-read-for-the-victorian-enthusiasts/)
http://neatorama.cachefly.net/images/2007-02/victoriana-magazine.jpg The Victorian Era, which spanned the reign of Queen Victoria (1837 - 1901), was an amazing period with great advances and change in virtually all facets of life. In technology, there was an explosion of inventions which, along with the industrial revolution, brought technology into use in daily lives of many people. Discoveries by Darwin marked the rise of importance of science, whereas works by Victorian writers like Dickens made novels popular with the reading public. It’s no wonder that the Victorian Era was seen by many as some sort of a rennaissance of the British and Western culture.
The Victorian Era was very unique in terms of its fashion: clothings, fashion accessories, home décor, and mannerisms - basically, the whole Victorian style and culture was wonderfully distinct.
Last February, to commemorate its 10th year anniversary, Victoriana.com (http://www.victoriana.com/) launched a free magazine for Victorian enthusiasts. The Victoriana Magazine (http://www.victorianamagazine.com/) features ideas and information on Victorian fashion, decorating, remodeling, entertaining, holidays, and history. For the crafters, there are articles on needlework, Victorian scrapbooking, stencil patterns and more.
The magazine also features some interesting articles on the quirky aspects of life during the Victorian era, such as Victorian Engagement Etiquette (Apr 2006), Victorian "Bathing Machine" (May 2006 - see below), Victoria Hair-Dos (Nov 2006), and Victorian Heart-Shaped Jewelry (Feb 2007).
Lastly, one of the neatest features in the Victoriana Magazine is the actual scanned pages of Harper’s Bazar, a period women’s fashion magazine that started in 1867 (the publication later changed its name to the Harper’s Bazaar you find in the bookstores today).
Enough readin’ - let’s take a closer look at the goodies you can expect to find in Victoriana Magazine (http://www.victorianamagazine.com/):
http://neatorama.cachefly.net/images/2007-02/victoriana-royal-underwear.jpg At Queen Victoria’s death in 1901, her huge wardrobe - including her underwear, were distributed to members of the Royal Household. The Queen’s personal garment became quite collectible.
The Royal Unmentionables article features Queen Victoria’s petticoat, nightgown, and even stockings! (Mar 2006 Issue)
http://neatorama.cachefly.net/images/2007-02/victoriana-cycling-fashion.jpg In the 1880s, cycling was trendy! In "The Golden Age of Bicycles," bicycling clubs for men and women flourished and racing was all the rage.
At first, women wore their everyday long skirts while cycling but this proved to be disasterous as they became tangled in the bike chains! So soon thereafter, special fasion for the bicycling lady brought about the "divided skirt" and the more extreme "bloomer costume." What do they look like? It’s in the August 2006 Issue.
http://neatorama.cachefly.net/images/2007-02/victoriana-christmas-card.jpg Did you know that the greeting card business came into being during the Victorian era? That’s because at that time, when a person paid a formal call on a friend, it was customary to leave a visiting card as a reminder of the visit.
In 1860, a publisher of visiting cards began mass producting cards designed for visits at Christmas - and so the Christmas card was born! (Nov 2006 Issue)
http://neatorama.cachefly.net/images/2007-02/victoriana-bathing-machine.jpg The bathing machine, a strange contraption on wheels used to ensure the privacy of women wearing bathing suits, was an essential component of a day at the beach during the Victorian era:The use of this device was more strictly enforced for women who had to endure a variety of discomforts which far outweighed any possible compensation of a day at the sea. The men had the best of it; they were allowed to bathe in drawers, and could plunge off one of the small boats that often patrolled along the front of the beach. Meanwhile, the vans and bathing-places for women were set far apart from those reserved for men, to guarantee that the modest woman in her bathing costume would not be seen by the opposite sex.
(May 2006 Issue)
Victoriana Magazine is a free online publication. Like Neatorama, it is supported by advertisement (they’re on-topic and may provide stuff of interest to the Victorian enthusiasts).

Check the link. Maybe we can get one of the ladies here to put together a nice pair of 1860 Victorian shoes ( size 12 gals...) for a certain website proprietor who wears a billycock hat and smokes cigars. Me.

Check out the dresses from the 1870's.
Maybe one of the guys on the site should start thinkin' of saving up some shekels to buy a guy that smokes cigars,wears a billycock hat and has an affinity for a nice, flowing dress once in a while.

Lizzie Borden article....
I wonder if they know that H. H. Holmes did the Lizzie Borden murders as well as the Ripper murders? At least according to lawyer Bruce Brennan in his eBook Holmes the Ripper.
