5 Random Facts About The 19th Century




Are you ready? I am so looking forward to the revenge filled, gritty and Dark television show. I screen the premier and had to watch it a couple of times. It looks like it's suspense filled and is going to have so many twist and turns. I am so happy that I am actually watching the TV show and not living in it. I can't imagine how horrible the living conditions were. Not being able to select which school I wanted to attend and having the wear dresses all the time is so not me. I love to wear dresses by choice. Not because I have to. I love how this show has a couple of familiar faces. Jonathan Pryce, Oona Chaplin, and Michael Kelley just to name a few. Looking forward to watching this show with the Mister. I know he's going to love it. 

19th Century Random Facts

  • Churches provided schools for poor children.
  • 25% of the population of Britain was living at or below subsistence level.

  • Butcher's meat was a luxury. 
  • In the early 19th century women wore light dresses.


"Set in 1814, Taboo follows James Keziah Delaney, a man who has been to the ends of the earth and comes back irrevocably changed. Believed to be long dead, he returns home to London from Africa to inherit what is left of his father’s shipping empire and rebuild a life for himself. But his father’s legacy is a poisoned chalice, and with enemies lurking in every dark corner, James must navigate increasingly complex territories to avoid his own death sentence. Encircled by conspiracy, murder and betrayal, a dark family mystery unfolds in a combustible tale of love and treachery."

  14. I haven't heard of this show before, sounds like the kind of show I would enjoy. I love anything thats a bit different and set 'back in the day'. i didn't know servants lived the attic, I always assumed the basement as thats where they usually are in films/shows you watch
