Prim and Proper
Before taking this class I like I am sure many others thought that the Victorian Era was full of fancy tea parties and women in big flowing dresses. The way that this era is portrayed in movies and books is that everyone is fabulously wealthy with large homes and spralling acerage. I picture the women sitting in sunrooms and doing needlepoint. If the women did go out they went shopping for frivolous items to fill their giant mansions. I picture the old men in Parliment arguing about religion, Protestant vs. Catholic. This was the big debate of the time and the image of the all of the old men with their long grey haired wigs is what sticks in my mind.
