The Victorian: celebrating 60 years

The Victorian Society is celebrating its 60th year and to commemorate that fact The Victorian magazine has a special cover this issue showing the sadly lost Euston Arch. The painting, entitled ‘The Doric Arch’, is by Barbara Jones and comes from the Victoria & Albert Museum.

The latest issue of The Victorian (issue 50) is out now and features the Victorian Society’s Top Ten Endangered Buildings 2015. Below are two of the pages from the feature. You can find out more about each of the buildings on the list here.

The Victorian: Tower Bridge

The latest issue of The Victorian (Issue 48) has gone to print. This is the opening spread of the article about the depiction of Tower Bridge in art to coincide with the exhibition at the Guildhall Art Gallery entitled ‘Tower Bridge: A Celebration of 120 Years, 1894–2014’.
