Plundering the gothic gradeur, industrial ingenuity and rigorous revivals of the Victorian era is both informative and valuable to us. Perhaps it is because it reminds us of some of the most ambitious and powerful works that, in many cases, are even more valued today due to, shall we say, certain errors in judgement or just experimentation over the intervening 20th Century.
