New category for Victorian Entertainment?[edit]

I'm thinking about creating a Victorian Entertainment category. Any thoughts? Should the Victorian architecture category go in here (in which case "Victorian Arts, Culture, and Entertainment" might be a better name)? Allens (talk) 22:23, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

British Empire[edit]

Is no one going to mention the fact that, at this point, Britain was the most powerful nation on earth and was responsible for the biggest empire in history? I know it's unfashionable for Britain to acknowledge the empire, but surely it's rather essential. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.29.238.169 (talk) 01:52, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Why would one age in the society mention something that has its own article. A wikilink should be more than sufficient for that task. Indeed, the Victorian era was at the end of the height of the British Empire.Wzrd1 (talk) 02:09, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Victorians and their love of collecting[edit]

I was wondering if someone in the know could give me a bit of assistance please. I'm trying to get my head around why there was a sudden boom in collecting stuff during the Victorian Era? What drove them to hoard everything all of a sudden? Cheers! -LÒÓkingYourBest(Talk|Edits) 01:33, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
