History Reimagined: Devices and Contraptions That Never Faded Away


Did you know the Victorians used vacuum cleaners and hearing aids? No, I didn't either. We often picture Victorians living on a farm or socializing in a bar, like in the western movies, but we don't realize that the Victorians lived a civilized life. If there was a device or contraption to improve their lives, they would purchase it from the latest catalogue.

Please check out my new column in the Home Section of Victoria and Vancouver Lifestyle Online Magazines. 

My first article of the series is more of a construction, than a contraption, The Victorian Conservatory. A home away from home, a wonderful abode full of the comforts of home.

The next one to be posted will be about Victorian hearing aids, and at the beginning of next month, we'll focus on the vacuum cleaner. 

Please check out these fantastic new websites full of content for the whole family. I've really enjoyed browsing their topics.
