If you don’t know, Steampunk is the now popular design style of modern day gadgets into Victorian era English style.

I saw this over at Shorpy, and had to share. Shorpy is ” a blog about old photos and what life a hundred years ago was like: How people looked and what they did for a living, back when not having a job usually meant not eating.” The Blog is a lot of fun to follow, and I highly recommend putting it in your feedreader.
