Michael Paterson makes the point that the Victorians were not so different from us: 'they had a fixation with new technology, were guilty of gross materialism, yet this was balanced... by a willingness to give charitable aid'. This readable history looks at everyday life – the food, fashion, transport, religion, work and leisure of ordinary Britons – from the 1830s to the end of the century.
