Description
 
If you lived in the 19th century, one of the surprises for most people would be the difference in the timing and structure of meals. Luncheon had only recently become established when Queen Victoria came to the throne. Tea was added in 1880. Lunch was created as a way for Victorian ladies to fill up the hours, and indeed, in Victorian times, meal-taking was based on the needs of showing social rank rather than nourishment. The modern timetable for meals reflects the patterns which were established in the 19th century, and the story of Victorian meals is set out in the chapters of this book. It is arranged meal by meal, throughout the day, from breakfast to supper, and offers a new and revealing look at life and habits in Victorian Britain. Illus.
