Reviews - What do our customers think?
What I've Been Looking For  Dec 28, 2002
This is a great book for anyone interested in the Victorian Era. Ot has many photographs and drawings, which are all beautiful. Many basic facts and detailed facts are layed out in this book. Like the previous reviewer, this book answered many questions, and provided me with some very interesting facts.

This book covers each of the following in 1-2 pages and with pictures and captions: the era, the exterior designs of houses, the parlor, the kitchen, the servants, the dining room, the bedroom, bathrooms, playrooms and nurserys, heat and electricity, various items, mansions, and the lifestyle of the Victorians. It also includes a helpful glossary.

Now I know how they lived here  Apr 20, 2001
In November, 1996, we moved into a very lovely Victorian Queen Anne home that has "tremendous possiblilties." That means that this house needs a lot of work.

I have searched and searched to find a book that would tell me how people lived in this house. Why is there a dumbwaiter from the basement to the kitchen? Why do the front parlor and living room have oak woodwork and the other rooms have pine? What did the bathrooms look like? What did the kitchen look like?

My friend borrowed this book from the local library to read to her children since they like the architecture of this house. She showed me this book and it is exactly what I had been looking for.

This book is easy to read and would be enjoyed by children of all ages. Restorers of these beautiful old homes would be interested in this book, too, since it gives us an idea of how people lived in these wonderful old homes and what their maners and customs were.

I would rate this book as a "must read" for all historians, costumers, restorers of old homes and Victorian fans everywhere.
