Britain may have changed radically over the past century and a half, but the era has been broadly documented in photographs. This fascinating album presents 400 images taken from 1865 to 1926, coming largely from the Frances Frith and Archie Miles collections and captioned in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, and Dutch. Along with photos of medieval-looking villages and crumbling cathedrals, genteel boating excursions and powerful steam locomotives, what is surprising is how rural this society still was, amid lush natural scenery and modest architecture. Here are Victorians and Edwardians at work and at play, tourist attractions like Stonehenge and Bodiam Castle, shops and markets long gone, and remarkably dignified portraits of children.
