The later Victorian era was such an optimistic time, at least for the educated classes. I wish we could be as optimistic about science, technology, learning, music, languages, art, literature, architecture and health care now.Happy, healthy 2015 to you!
They were such exciting times as far as all the 'possibilities' were concerned, Hel. Thank you! Thank you also for your support and wishing a very Happy New Year!
merry christmas and happy new year
