The Victorians were passionate about their homes and spent considerable amounts of money on home furnishings partly to make them feel more comfortable and partly to advertise their wealth to their friends and neighbours. Many people hung paintings in their homes and nostalgic subjects such as childhood, old age, love and agricultural life were popular. Paintings were hung from picture rails, these rails were also a symbol of prosperity- before this time only the very wealthy could afford to have plasterwork and mouldings in their homes.
