Description
Upstairs, an aristocratic Edwardian home in early 20th-century England would have been a picture of elegance and order, a place for social gatherings and extravagantly arranged dinner parties. Downstairs, it was a buzzing hive of domestic activity, supported by a hardworking staff dedicated to the smooth running of the household. Many stories have been written about the elegant world of the lords and ladies of the house; here Alison Maloney describes the daily lives of the servants, revealing a lively and colorful picture of what went on below stairs. Detailing everything from household structure, pay and conditions, special duties, and rules and regulations, to perks, entertainment, and even romance, Maloney's illustrated history gives us the rewards and pleasures as well as the drudgery and hardship, with firsthand accounts from experienced butlers, maids, and cooks.
