Online Talk: Below Stairs: Servants at Elizabeth Gaskell’s House
What did servants do on a daily basis and what was a life ‘in service’ like? Anthony Burton reveals tantalising glimpses of those ‘below stairs’ at 84 Plymouth Grove before looking to contemporary sources to discover more about Victorian servants. The middle classes often complained of the ‘Servant Problem’, but how were relations between the Gaskell family and their servants? Find out more in this illuminating talk by Anthony Burton.
The talk will be approx 45 mins long, with time for a short question session afterwards
