Video of Life in Europe, in the 1800s

Since yesterday's post was about the past, it seemed only fitting that I add another today. I'm frantically working on the last chapter of my book and don't have time to update this blog properly right now. My apologies for that.


I really would love to be able to add more stories about historical expats — not famous ones, per se, but ordinary people. Somehow it seems like it would have been a more adventurous thing back then (yeah, right. Tell that to the Irish immigrants to the US, escaping the potato famine).

On a personal note, I lived very close to the Westminster Bridge you see in the above video and I find it fascinating that so many of the views I see in the video above are relatively unchanged today.
