Downton Abbey fans take on the London entertainment district... 18 April 2013
By Catherine C. Payne - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Enchanted with period pieces like Downton Abbey, focusing mostly on the everyday life of the swells, Gavin Weightman reveals the downtown of London's entertainment district night life, circa 1830-1950. What a grandly fascinating period! A documentarian, Mr. Weightman's six part series, either not offered in the U.S., or sadly missed by me, brings to the fore how the swells were entertained. Well, probably not the Lord Grantham kind of swells, as that would be too, too scandalous. Example: the back area of theaters often had "naughty" photos of actresses, a kind of peep show, breathing life as Mr. Weightman reminds us, into the stereotype that actresses were prostitutes. Reality check: ballet dancers were considered sexy. If you are interested in 19th and 20 century London entertainment, or in the lives of everyday London people, enjoying the nightlife, you most likely will enjoy this book. A bonus: artwork in the form of reproduced paintings, playbills, and drawings are just delightful.
