Victorian-Tech

Steampunkery is a style I find myself quite strangely drawn to…

Wikipedia says –

Steampunk involves a setting where steam power  is still widely used—usually the Victorian era  Britain —that incorporates elements of either science fiction or fantasy. Works of steampunk often feature anachronistic  technology  or futuristic innovations as Victorians may have envisioned  them; based on a Victorian perspective on fashion , culture , architectural style , art , etc. “

The new Sherlock Holmes movie has quite a few references to this style. I like!

Christopher Lloyd in back to the Future 2, and the 4 non blondes also seemed to be fans. Not everyone’s cuppa…but certainly very visually interesting
