This is an advertisement for the services of ventilating and hot water engineer J. Best. Victorian society was transformed by engineering ingenuity and entrepreneurial prowess and Britain became the leading power in the Industrial Revolution. The new technologies of the time completely transformed how people lead their daily lives, for example piped hot water was by the end of the 19th century, available in the home for those wealthy enough to employ engineers to fit systems. Piped water was a great luxury as water would no longer have to be carried into the home from street pumps and heated on fires and ranges.
