Victorian architecture

Victorian architecture was the revival and eclectic architecture, decor, and furnishings popular in English-speaking countries during the reign of Queen Victoria of England, 1837-1901, characterized by rapid changes of style as a consequence of aesthetic controversy and technological innovations, by the frequent presence of ostentatious ornament, and by an overall trend from classicism at the start to romanticism and eclecticism at the middle of the period and thence to classicism again.
