Elizabeth's London PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Elizabeth's London free pdf Like its acclaimed predecessors, RESTORATION LONDON and DR JOHNSON'S LONDON, this book is the result of the author's passionate interest in the practical details of everyday life - and the conditions in which most people lived - so often ignored in conventional history books. The book begins with the River Thames, which - from its surly water-men to its great occasions - played such a central part in the city's life. It moves on to the streets, houses and gardens- cooking, housework and shopping- clothes, jewellery and make-up- health and medicine- sex and food- education, etiquette and hobbies- religion, law and crime.
