Do you remember when washing was done on Wednesday, baking was done on Thursday and dinner was always on the table by six? Back then a floral apron was the ultimate accessory, lipstick and high heels meant that a wife was always pretty about the house, and, most importantly, a woman knew her place.
Taken from publications of the 1950s and 1960s, A Woman's Place will take you back to the good old days. Vexing questions are raised: should a husband pay his wife pocket money? What will become of a marriage when a man is not served mustard? And can a woman be any happier than when that sparking new formica bench-top is installed in her kitchen?
So pull on your garter belt, pop on a pretty frock, put out the best china teapot and step dip into the wonderful, hilarious and often peculiar world of yesteryear.
