Mid-Victorian Britain 1851-75

Mid-Victorian Britain was a period of enormous confidence and economic expansion for Britain. Geoffrey Best (http://www.britac.ac.uk/fellowship/elections/2003/best_g.cfm) gives us a history of great lucidity and readability. The Great Exhibition of 1851 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Exhibition) in fact represented the high-water mark of Victorian society, and the two decades which followed form one of the most fascinating and fruitful areas of British history. What was life at home and at work like in that era?  What motivated the mid-Victorians, and what were their interests and concerns? Thank you Geoffrey for explaining it all!
