Rare Vintage Photos of Christmas in the Victorian Era

Woman returning home with a Christmas tree, 1895

The Victorian era is generally regarded to be the years of Queen Victoria's reign, from 1837 to 1901. Shown here are a few selections from a fascinating collection of photographs of Christmas in the Victorian years. Artificial Christmas trees didn't yet exist, thus the trees had an imperfect, usually shorter shape than we're used to seeing today. Christmas lights strung on the tree? Negative. Beautiful handmade ornaments? Practically guaranteed.
