Victoria Day

Queen Victoria with her favourite Border Collie Sharp

Although my taste and interest exceeds things Victorian, I try to keep this blog as Victorian as possible. This coming Monday will be Victoria Day, a statutory holiday for Canadians in honour of Queen Victoria's birthday. It also unofficially marks the beginning of Summer - What!?! What happened to Spring?

Oh to have been alive when Victorian was around. She changed our worlds in many ways. I love the photo. Thanks for sharing.Richard at My Old Historic House

Hello Richard,
You celebrate Victoria everyday, your home is a wonderful testimonial.

Hi Anyes-

Happy Victoria Day! I don't believe I've ever seen that photo of the Queen before. Very nice. She really resembles the current Queen in this photo! :-)

Thank you Pam. Oddly enough, the British, of all people, do not celebrate Victoria Day. I'm not sure why. Yes, you can see the family traits. I think the amazing blue eyes of the Sax-Coburg were their best feature.
Of what I read about Sharp, her Border Collie, he was quite the spoiled brat, but totally devoted to the Queen.
Doesn't he look like the ultimate mama's boy in that picture?
