Transcript of Victorian era

Many people thought the responsibility was too great for her but she was a determined woman and reigned for 64 years. 1841 In 1841 the first railway excursion was organised by Thomas Cook. At the museum you can see some of the very first train tickets used for such excursions.
1854 In 1854 Florence Nightingale went to the Crimea to organise nursing during the war. There she saved the lives of many injured soldiers. In 1864 boys under the age of 10 were banned from being chimney sweeps. At Birmingham Museum you can see a Victorian fire place similar to the ones the boys would have cleaned. 1874 The '10 hour Factory Act' was introduced.
This meant that people could only be made
to work for up to 10 hours per day.
