Victorian & Georgian Colonial Homes
The term Victorian architecture refers collectively to several architectural styles employed predominantly during the middle and late 19th century. The period that it indicates may slightly overlap the actual reign, 20 June 1837 – 22 January 1901, of Queen Victoria.
Liverpool's homes reflect a period where there are a number of combinations of homes built; including Georgian Colonial and Victorian with the romantic Queen Anne touch; its square or round towers.
These traditional heritage homes are graceful and beautiful and Liverpool has a number of them. Georgian houses are generally so well built that they are virtually unchanged 200 years later. This style was cumulative of architectural fashion in Britain during the reign of the first three King Georges of England (1750 - 1820), which spread to Canada and other commonwealth countries as well as the United States. Georgian architecture in Britain was, like Victorian in Canada, the term used for all styles of architecture created during the reign of the Kings George. Georgian architecture blossomed during this period along with this prosperity came the flowering of the arts. In music there was Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, and Haydn. In literature Jane Austin, Coleridge, Fielding and Wordsworth, and the visual artists Blake, Constable and Gainsborough among others.
