What is your favorite time period in history?

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

Who is your favorite historical figure?

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

Do you have a favorite historical relic, site, or area?

Shakespeare's rebuilt Globe theatre. And my collection of thousands of photographs and postcards of the late Victorian and Edwardian theatre.

Please let us a know a few 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.


Well, I was born about 70 years too late – 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.
