Edwardian Scrapbook, Hardback Book

Edwardian Scrapbook Hardback

Hardback

Description

With Edward VII on the throne and the dawn of a new century, Britain embraced the technology of the future.

Motor transport began to replace the horse, and by the end of the Edwardian era, the possibilities of the aeroplane could be seen.

While the telephone was for business communication, the popular craze was to send picture postcards, especially from the seaside.

In the home, vacuum cleaners were the latest innovation, while in the streets women protested for their rights.

Ping Pong was the fashionable parlour game for adults, whilst the teddy bear quickly became the cuddly companion for children. Like the other vibrant titles in the series, 'The Edwardian Scrapbook' offers a glimpse at what used to be drawing upon Robert Opie's unrivalled collection of ephemera and packaging.

It adds to our knowledge of the recent past and is packed full of information and nostalgia; an evocative, vivid and vibrant look at British history. AUTHOR Since the 1970s, Robert Opie has amassed an unrivalled collection of packaging.

He is the author of numerous publications and has given many talks to schools, as well as on radio and television. Colour throughout
