12 photos which show Derby in all its Victorian glory
Can you believe how quickly time flies? For instance, because the following photos were taken during the 19th century and so much time has past since then, no-one looking at them today will have specific memories of those times and events.
What is most amazing about these images, however, is the similarities and differences between Derby then and now. For example, preparing for big events, traffic jams (at least in horse-and-cart form!) and the challenges of running a business were all important elements of Victorian life, as these photos show, as much as they are now.
