Very nice and great detail, although maybe it's more Belle Epoque which is 1871 to 1914 than just Victorian.
Thanks! To my knowledge, Belle Epoque refers to the same timeframe as Victorian (1860 or mostly 1880-1914), itís just how it was called in France. So the difference is geographically.

I agree with Tahra about the boy on stilts, but back then Kids grew up Tough , as in "what doesn't make you stronger will probably kill you". It does look funny, though, as if he and his sister have been sent out on the balcony to play and he is peeping in through the window to see what they're missing...
Yes thatís it, just kids having a bit of fun.

The Victorian era is 1837 to 1901, so there is some overlap with the Belle Epoque, but not exact by any means.

Whatís a darwin award?

Darwin Awards (wikipedia)
Quote
The Darwin Awards are a tongue-in-cheek honor, originating in Usenet newsgroup discussions around 1985. They recognize individuals who have supposedly contributed to human evolution by selecting themselves out of the gene pool via death or sterilization by their own actions.

Such wonderful scenes! Well lit and beautifully arranged. I agree some of the pictures look like the box art from those sets. Adorable!

I especially like the party outside and the magician's show in the attic room.
I'd love to see more like this  :love:
