“The Victorian Age has been marvellously eventful. It will stand out in history as the most remarkable period England has known. They Queen has not only reigned longer than her predecessors, but she has ruled the nation better. She has seen her people advance in every province of life. It has been the age of Railroads, Steamboats, Telegraphs, Telephones, Electric Cables, Electric Light, and the Penny Post; the age of discovery and invention, and of marvellous expansion of Empire and increase of national wealth. All these things are splendidly illustrated and made to live in this fine set of Slides, with an instructive and wonderfully interesting reading.”
