Beamish - Part III - An English Woman's home is her.....?
In English Medieval Times, when court would dine, they used to place the lowly classes below the salt and the courtiers above it along the banquet table (salt being the expensive commodity it was). The class system hasn't really ended in the UK, although it's not as blatant - certainly not in Beamish 1920's. Here are two homes, the home of a solicitor and the home of a Miner - can you guess which is which? ...and the toilet outside..... I really like the green house though - think they may have run out of glass? Looks Great! Both house holds to me were astonishingly beautiful but my ancestors were miners so I know which side of the salt I sit on. TTFN xxxx
