An Edwardian Childhood Summary


An Edwardian Childhood by Jane Pettigrew

The "golden age" between 1901 and the outbreak of World War I was generally a time of innocence and joy for Edwardian children. They were, however, still closely supervised and the nursery, presided over by the nanny, became the haven from which the child's life was gently but firmly ruled. Drawing on the experiences recalled by children of that time, the author takes the reader on a promenade through the days of the nursery and out into the world of Edwardian Britain. Journeys by electric trams to brightly lit department stores, colourful posters heralding stars from the first moving picture shows and cups of hot cocoa once safely returned to the nursery are all evoked in words and pictures.
