(Eighteen ninety-seven was the year of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, as 2012 was the year of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. So the reign of Queen Victoria at this time was analogous to the reign of Elizabeth II today, 115 years later. A man who turned 34 in the year of Victoria's Diamond Jubilee would have been born in 1863, as I having been born in 1978 turned 34 in the year of Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee.)
