a downstairs history of Britain from the nineteenth century to modern times
The symbolic pantomime
"A sort of silence and embarrassment"
The dainty life
"A seat in the hall"
Centralising the egg yolks
Popinjays and mob caps
The desire for perfection
"Some poor girl's got to go up and down, up and down
The sacred trust
The ideal village
"Silent, obsequious and omnipresent"
Bowing and scraping
The age of ambivalence
Out of a cage
"Don't think your life will be any different to mine"
"It was exploitation but it worked"
"Tall, strong, healthy and keen to work"
The mechanical maid
Outer show and inner life
A vast machine that has forgotten how to stop working
Bachelor establishments are notoriously comfortable
The question of the inner life
"Do they really drink out of their saucers?'
"Of alien origin"
A new jerusalem
A new and useful life
The housewife militant
"The change : it must have been terrible for them"
The shape of things to come
"We don't want them days again'
"We've moved to the front"
"I'd never done what i liked
never in all my life"
"We like it because the past is not so worrying as the news"
