Victorian Britain (History from Buildings/History on your Doorstep)
This book aimed at children aged 8 to 11 (Key Stage 2) is one of a series looking at how buildings define an era.
Buildings define an era in so many ways: this book is one of a series showing young readers what buildings tell us of life in a particular period. In the case of the Victorians, evidence is all around.
In Victorian Britain I focus on some of the most spectacular buildings of the age, as well as smaller ones - such as police stations, shopping arcades, sports grounds and libraries that reflect changing lifestyles and living standards.
The History on your Doorstep series was originally published as History from Buildings.
