SUMMARY Lost Voices of the Edwardians 1901 1910 in Their Own Words

Combining oral history rare images and rediscovered film stills from the turn of the century this work gives voice to the forgotten figures who peopled the cities factories and coasts This is my favorite kind of history book which is compiled using oral memoirs because who can describe it better than someone who actually was there This is a real must read for anyone who enjoys reading non fiction history

Lost Voices of the Edwardians 1901 1910 in Their Own Words

Of Edwardian Britain This extraordinary period was fueled by a relentless sense of progress and witnessed the invention of many of the technologies now taken for granted This exciting This is a very informative and readable social history taken from oral history accounts and memoirs of Edwardian England It contains anecdotes and memories from a diverse group of people every class urban and rural men and women Northern and Southern It might have been nice to have seen some ethnic diversity beyond Jewish or Anglo Saxon in fact there are black men in some of the photos and Indian servants are mentioned but no one BAME is given a voice Apart from that there s a lot of variety It s full of details of life at the time and a good overview of attitudes and circumstances of the beginning of the twentieth century

Max Arthur ☆ 1 CHARACTERS

Work draws together the experiences of people from all walks of life capturing the first generation that was able to record their lives on film and imbuing them with emotional immediac For a book based on archival materials I was disappointed I think it was just too piecemeal you never get to know the individuals properly and just get brief glimpses of their life stories And much is lost in the transfer of oral history onto paper the immediacy of a person s voice their accent and intonationThere are some interesting and heart breaking stories here but they re not enough to make an engaging read
