A Victorian Shopping

There are a lot of victorian advertisements. The description for this site says that they are a "collection of adverts gathered from magazines and books published in the United Kingdom in the Victorian era."

There are various subjects. Such as Medicine, Food, Gardening, Pest Control and more. I was particularly amused at the "Victorian Breakfast Dresses". and the "Cocoa for Invalids" ads. I never heard of these before. But eating a breakfast wearing PJ is good enough for me ;-)
