Victorian Cars: Early car drivers required an attendant to walk in front of the car with a red flag as a warning.
Victorian Bicycles: A penny farthing bicycle was built with no brakes and was almost six feet from the ground!
Victorian Railways: In 1840 and early 1850, 8000 miles of railways were built all over Britain.

☆At the start of the Victorian era people mostly traveld in steam trains but by the 1860’s they rode on penny farthing, carriages, waggons and some people often pointed out air ships and iron steam ships. By the 1890’s motor cars were invented.
☆the Brougham was a popular vehical for everyday use. It was a light 4 wheeled cartridge pulled by 1 horse.
☆most people living in the country travled in big open waggons and stays. These were bigger, heavier and slower than the brougham.
Great work, well done! 👍🏻

VICTORIAN TRANSPORT 1-At the beginning of Queen Victoria’s reign, most people travelled by foot, horseback or horse and cart.
2-At the end of the Victorian period the horseless carriage (motor car) started appearing on roads.
3-The very first petrol driven “horseless carriage” appeared in 1865 however, these first cars were rarely seen until the 1880s and 1890s. Only the very wealthy could afford to buy them
