Love and Marriage in the Age of the Roscoes
1490 Fairfield Rd, Victoria, BC V8S 1E8, Canada
In the mid-19th century, gender relations were being redefined from Britain to British Columbia. Key influences were industrialization, emigration, the example set by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as well as the rise of the 'middle class'. These changing values were likely reflected by English immigrants to Victoria such as the Roscoes.
