  1. I'm loving all these period pictures you're posting! Where are you finding them all?

    1. I've been researching my novel for over two years, so they come from many sources. Where more images are available, I try to include links, but sometimes find I am dealing with too many images to keep track! Google image searches are often very helpful too :)

      So glad that your enjoying them!
