Victorian Characters - Dickens on The Strand

Characters are one of the most important part of any story. 

The Ghost of Christmas Present
And every year in December at Dickens On the Strand, in honor of Charles Dickens' Characters and the Victorian era, Galveston Texas is filled with interesting characters. As an author of Steampunk/Victorina romances I love that era and I attend every year. For all of those that don't get to attend, I wanted to share some of my favorite Dickens on the Strand characters with you. Please comment below on which characters you like to read about the most and any favorite books you've seen them in. The one to the left is of course from The Christmas Carol.
Chimney Sweeps
Beef Eaters
A Pirate with Friends

A Victorian Medium

Here's Wishing you warm holiday greetings to you, your family and your favorite characters.
