Description

Find out how the holidays of British families have changed dramatically in the past 150 years as foreign travel has become easier, cheaper and more accessible. What were holidays like for Victorian children? This book looks at family holidays through the ages, from days out in the countryside, to British seaside resorts and more modern destinations. The Past in Pictures series gives a fascinating look at life in Britain through the photographs of The National Archives. It looks at past eras; at the way rich and poor families lived, the concept of holidays and leisure time for families and how the role of men, women and children from Victorian times, through two world wars, to modern Britain, have changed.
