1850's, so what was that, just post-Industrial Revolution? Yeah, that's what I picture.

Something like this.
Between 1880 - 1900 or so, specifically in europe at the time; not sure if thats the victorian era, but the steampunk's what i was referencing.

During the reign of Queen Victora. 1830s to the 1900s England.
