Summary
As the age approaches our own, time accelerates; and in the six-and-a-half decades of Victoria's reign, changes came thick and fast: England's population doubled, the economy exploded, railways shrank the country's size, iron and steel were everywhere-in clothing too, in the women's steel hoops and cages and bustles. This was an age that began in moderation and soon became a contest for conspicuous consumption; an age of contradictions, too, when children began to be dressed as children while women were strapped into tight corsets; an age that ended looking not all that different from our own.
