Summary
Moving through the rhythm of the day, from waking up to the sound of a knocker-upper man poking a stick at your window, to retiring for nocturnal activities, when the door finally closes on twenty four hours of life, this guide illuminates the overlapping worlds of health, sex, fashion, food, school, work and play
Summary
Describes the details of everyday life in the Victorian period, from leisure activities and fashion, to education, and contraception, including doing calisthenics, putting on a corset, and giving opium to the children before bedtime
