Victorian Household Hints

Postby Marcus Woodhouse » Sun Nov 04, 2012 12:52 pm

"Useful hints and tips to keep a well managed household" Musuem Selection (Harriet Bridgeman and Elizabeth Druary) 2006
I have never watched Downton Abbey and find all things Victorain a turn off as a rule (blame too many years teaching about it) but this is quite fun as a guidebook for the servants of the house and the Lady of the house who was expected to manage them. Don't for the love of Mary try out the suggestions on cleaning silverware or curing minor ailments as they would almost certainly result in death!
