5.0 out of 5 stars Step Into a Vanished World, 4 Mar. 2014
This review is from: A Visitor's Guide to Victorian England (Paperback)
Michelle Higgs' new guide to Victorian England is a 'must' for fans of TV series like Downton Abbey, and anyone interested in this fascinating era. This book is crammed full of facts a 'visitor' to the past needs to know, from how much to tip the 'boots' at a hotel, the perils of over-tight corsetry, going shopping, 'spending a penny', etc., to the niceties of encounters with the opposite sex. Higgs skilfully creates a detailed picture of everyday life using contemporary diaries and literature. Here you'll meet 'bearded ladies', go to a music hall, and enjoy a day at the races. The book contains appendices crammed with useful facts concerning wages, the cost of living, and the price of accommodation...Just pray that you don't need a doctor's services during your 'visit'! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
