A view of the downstairs side of "Upstairs Downstairs",
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Servants: A Downstairs View of Twentieth-century Britain (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed the, slightly, more modern view of the life of a servants in Britain than that illustrated on the television . This book covers non-living-in "helps" rather than the people illustrated by Hudson, Mrs Bridges and their support staff. This coverage is achieved, quoting the views of "employers", rather than doers. It thus appears to lack depth and reality. Never-the-less the book is interesting and would contribute useful material to those involved in recent social history or interested in how the "other half" lived.
