A small collection of websites I have located during this month, which may be of interest to those who skim this small blog
The Gentlemans Page
A well-done blog on the many of the manners and expected behaviors of a gentleman of the era. Through, it has a good number of topics it touches upon, such as: Deportment, how to act in the presence of ladies, Greetings, a review of suits and coats, and many more items that any Victorian / Steampunk gentleman should know! (It even has a small excerpt from Mark Twains unfinished book of etiquette listing in which order to save individuals from a boarding house fire!)
A clever comic of Victorian individuals with modern dilemmas. The era artwork is quite good.
A look at how the Heliograph was used during this conflict, with illustrations and links about the use of said piece of equipment.
