Taking its cue from the source material, Victorian Popular Culture welcomes readers into the darkened halls, small backrooms and travelling venues that hosted everything from spectacular shows and bawdy burlesque, to magic and spiritualist séances. Victorian Popular Culture contains a wide range of source material relating to popular entertainment in America, Britain and Europe in the period from 1779 to 1930, and shows how interconnected these worlds were. As well as fascinating primary source material in the form of objects, printed books, ephemera, posters, photographs and playbills, the resource includes a number of useful secondary sources to support teaching and research. Delve into different areas of entertainment in contextual essays by our Consultant Editors, explore significant dates and events in the history of popular culture and the Victorian world in an interactive chronology, learn more about the key people and venues in the Biographies and Venues glossaries, and view striking images in a gallery that can be personalised for teaching and presentations.
