"The intricate workings of a Victorian household are vividly brought to life by this collection of once-familiar domestic items: visiting cards, dance programmes, invitations, catalogues, advertisements, menus, scraps, samples, calendars, letters, postcards and original wallpapers. The delightful range of ephemera illustrates not only the decoration of the house itself, but also the daily round of activities, both practical and entertaining, which took place above and below stairs."
