(Victorian Month) The Landlady
Victorian England is not renown for having an exciting palette of coloured clothing and it is even more limiting when it comes to working class characters. Consequently the landlady is painted in a black dress with white apron (slightly grubbied up), I gave her blonde hair for a splash of colour.
On a related note the postie delivered a copy of Donald Thomas' The Victorian Underworld, an interesting looking book about criminal activities in Victorian London and the police response. Should be full of great gang and scenario ideas.
