Pertaining to the Victorian and Edwardian era in Britain. A time of sepia, steam and iron; imperial pomp, extravagant facial hair, and more starch and crinoline than you could shake an ivory-tipped stick at. The word is a blend modelled on "Jacobethan" (Jacobean + Elizabethan).
Victwardian semi-detached houses are popular with upwardly-mobile couples with young children.
