Harrods in Edwardian Times

Harrods in Edwardian Times


Hill Road,
Lyme Regis,


Yvonne returns to Lyme following her popular talk last year about the Edwardian Garden. Now she swaps gardening for shopping, having spent many happy hours in the Harrods' Archives. Early catalogues and much more provide a fascinating insight into the shopping habits of the comfortably-off around 100 years ago, and much wry humour when viewed from a modern perspective.

Yvonne became interested in the Edwardian era when her family moved into a villa of that period. Furniture contemporary with the 1910 house was inexpensive at the time, and gradually her fascination spread to pictures, ornaments, music, books, magazines, cards, postcards, and the like. She gives talks on various aspects of the period, has appeared on television and radio, and had many articles published.

She looks forward to again enjoying "the company of your very interested members."
