Need Mourning clothes? Portraits on stereoscopic slides? Spectacles? A self adjusting shirt? – Victorian Advertisements from 1859

I was searching Google Books for an image to put on my Facebook page when I stumbled across these wonderful Victorian advertisements in the back of Peter Parley’s Annual: A Christmas and New Year’s Present for Young People, published in 1859. Click on an individual advertisement to read it.  Enjoy!
