The Late 1800's: General Information and Imagery

This time period is similar to our Earth's late 19th century AKA the Victorian Era, with steam as the propulsion of choice and railways as the major means of transportation. Stagecoaches, highwaymen, and cowboys are commonplace. Airships sail the skies, and figures shadowy and revolutionary stalk the streets. All natives are furry (Skin Avian are present here too). No native humans.
