Victorian Peep Show

Our hand-cut peep shows are replicas of those held in SS Great Britain archives. Peep shows were popular souvenirs in the Victorian period. They resemble miniature stage sets and expand to create an illusion of depth.

This peep show illustrates the Thames Tunnel, the first successful tunnel dug underneath a river, built by Sir Marc Brunel and his son Isambard. By carefully extending the peep show and looking through the view hole, you will see the captivating scene enjoyed by Victorians.

They make special and unique gifts for anyone with an interest in history.
