Which time period in history or recent past/present is your favorite?

The Fin de siècle and La Belle Époque (roughly from 1870 to 1917)

Who is your favorite (dead/alive/or legendary) person?

One favourite? – impossible!; but Charles Darwin, Empress Elizabeth, Camille Clifford, James M Whistler, Dante Rossetti, and Polaire for a start.

Which is your favorite cultural or historical event?

Shakespearean and Edwardian plays are favourites.

Which places or events (locally) you would like to visit?

This area has quite a few Spanish colonial, Settler, and WW II era sites which are interesting. Most any local historic site or event. Pseudo-historic Renaissance and Dicken's Faires and Steampunk events would be fun as well.


I love the late-Victorian and Edwardian eras; particularly the arts, and especially stage interests me. But most any other well-told or interesting story from other periods holds my interest as well.
