Great Portraits from the Victorian Era

13 October at 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Come face to face with Charles Dickens, Florence Nightingale, Charles Darwin, Thomas Barnardo, Lewis Carroll, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Emmeline Pankhurst, Elizabeth Gaskell and many more celebrated British personalities of the Victorian Age who have helped to shape the United Kingdom of today.
