This delightful collection of articles and advertisements from the years 1922 to 1939 is a nostalgic journey into the homes of yesteryear and a pleasing reminder that, while servants and the £1,000 house may be a thing of the past, the hopes invested in, and pleasures derived from, our homes have remained reassuringly familiar throughout the years. In the pages of Good Housekeeping some of this century’s greatest writers – names like Rebecca West, Violet Bonham-Carter and Vera Brittain – gave their views on these subjects under titles such as ‘A Home in London or in the Country’ and ‘The Itch of Efficiency’.
