The Victorians were the first to see children as independent individuals with their own needs rather than as small adults. The life of a child in the 19th century differed greatly depending on where they were born and into what class. Working class children would have started working at a young age and would have little leisure time. In contrast middle and upper families had time and money to spend on their children. This leaflet is for Henry Webster’s baby chairs, they are well made and beautifully carved and for families that could afford it they were a useful item of furniture.
