Roughly covers the Western world during the mid- to late-19th century (ie: Victorian era, US wild west, etc.), and sometimes up to the Edwardian era.
1920s up through WWII, ending at just about the Cold War.
A cleaner, artistic, more “optimistic” version of Dieselpunk (same time period)
Covers the time of the Renaissance (think da Vinci)
Cold War era, ie: the Space Race

Biotechnology, genetics (part science fiction, part real life)
Nanotechnology, sometimes overlaps with Biopunk
