This reissue of the classic guide for the 1949 housewife was originally published in post-war Britain, and its lasting appeal and fascination have endured through the years. Although the wartime emphasis on making do is paramount, we see glimpses of a new world of "luxury" with "Washing and Ironing with Electricity" and "Making a Modern Divan Bed." Advice on every aspect of the housewife's life is given, from managing household chores to finding useful hobbies to pass the time. Arranging menus, basketry, leatherwork, care of the complexion and hair, and building a hat wardrobe are all covered in this delightful look at the past. These 50 suggestions are funny and charming, but all provide a fantastic insight into a woman's life and aspirations after the watershed of the war.
