What lighting did the Victorians have?

The nineteenth century saw the emergence of gas lighting. Gas fired oil lamps were popular in homes and even in street lights. Think cobbled streets and cast iron lantern lights illuminating horse drawn carriages. Smaller villages and rural communities didn’t have the luxury of gas and still had to rely on oil and candlelight. It wasn’t until the late 1880s that gas usage was more widespread and convenient lighting became the norm.
