I've always assumed, based on the our-world references, that _Charmed
Life_ and _Witch Week_ are set at around the same time they were
written (mid-to-late 70s and early-to-mid 80s respectively), with the
others spread out around them as appropriate, and that the
old-fashioned appearance of the place is due to the differences in
history - in particular the existance of magic, which would make the
world appear low-tech when really it's just different-tech.

(Ouch. Evil run-on sentence.)
