Upstairs and Downstairs
By

Rating
This beautifully illustrated book takes the reader on a journey through a day in the life of the workings of homes from the Edwardian era up to the beginning of the Second World War. Starting with the work done by the servants before the family had even started to stir and culminating with the preparation both above and below stairs for a sophisticated dinner party, Upstairs and Downstairs intersperses this with feature spreads on famous figures from the period, including Beatrix Potter, P G Wodehouse and Winston Churchill. Also included throughout are personal accounts from masters and their servants which reveal the secret histories of the people and the houses themselves.
