Print
This beautifully illustrated book takes readers on a guided tour of a single day in an upper-crust English home of the Edwardian era. Starting with the servants hard at work while the family is still abed, and culminating in a lavish dinner party, Upstairs & Downstairs lifts the curtain on this fascinating period, as well as its historical bookends, the Victorian and post-World War I eras. Includes accounts from actual masters and servants, along with feature spreads on famous figures.--From publisher description.

This book is an easy read, simply describing the roles of servants and how the upper class spent their day. It was very informative and I will probably be buying it for my personal library.

This is a packaged bk for the remainder/coffee-table-bk-market, w. a lively selection of illustrations. However, except for a few of the sidebars, there are no citations for where the author got her info. And "high tea" is not the same as "afternoon tea"!
