Victoria Reigns Again

Thanks to Jason for pointing me towards the Dictionary of Victorian London. It has scores of articles describing daily life and historic events in the city between 1837 and 1901. You'll find descriptions of everything from the enthusiasm for hot eels and pea soup to the 1861 Tooley Street Fire to tales of Victorian women in prison. A must-browse for the 19th cenutry London-o-phile.
