Fears and Dreams

One of the biggest dreams of Victorians times was the one of have a family home, where all the members of the family had its own place. The family home was a place where all the family can be together, a place where you can eat, rest, be warm and all the pleasures that you can find in a comfortable place that was the dream of the “home sweet home”.

But outside all the pleasures of that comfortable home with peace, there are lots of “fears” that the people that live in that times suffer. The poverty, diseases and the evil of drink wants to destroy the Victorian dreams “home sweet home”. In the streets the streets the drunk people were in all the corners and the crimes were something of all days. The poverty in that times forced to children to work and also the poverty brings diseases because the sanitary conditions were awful.
