First of all, let me congratulate (and envy) you for buying a real 1903 Victorian. IMHO, a metal roof would be an excellent replacement for your deteriorated cedar shingles and, yes, tin was certainly used in the Victorian period.

I looked on the 'net to find an example of a Victorian tin roof and found one at That's one example.

Another suggestion would be to look up the *Savannah House* at the This Old House web site (sorry, Bob) -- lots of info about metal roofs!

Best of luck and God bless,
