Praise

[With Victorians and Edwardians at Work (Shire 2009)]: ”If you find the Victorian and Edwardian eras even a smidgen  interesting, you simply must read these two books. They provide a  complete and fascinating look back at the people that lived in those time periods. First, in “At Work”, we learn about every occupation from actors to postmen to fishwives to pit brow lasses! Each occupation has pages of details about the tasks involved as well as photos of workers fulfilling their duties. The Victorians and Edwardians worked hard, but as evidenced in “At Play”, they played just as hard. They enjoyed many of the same activities we do today, such as trips to the zoo and the races, a game of golf  or hunting, roller skating and even enjoying their pint of beer. Both books have a wealth of beautifully tinted vintage photographs and more details about their lives than you could have imagined! These books are definitely “keepers” for anyone that wishes, just a tiny bit, that they were born in a simpler, earlier time. ” -For Immediate Release Reviews / forimmediatereleasereviews.com (December 2009)
