The Victorian period covers the period between about 1820 and 1914, corresponding roughly to the period of Queen Victoria’s reign (1837-1901). During the Victorian period, fireplaces were the primary heat source during the colder winter months. Fireplaces and stoves were generally found in every room of a Victorian home. Even once central heating became available, many could not afford it. Those who could afford it preferred the ambiance of a warm fire to gather around when temperatures got cold.
