BIGS welcomes historical lecturer Tames Alan
The Bainbridge Island Genealogical Society welcomes historical lecturer Tames Alan of Living History Lectures for the presentation “In Service - Life Downstairs.”
BIGS meets at 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 20 in the Bainbridge Public Library meeting room.
Wearing an authentic parlor maid’s costume and talking about what it was like to live and work downstairs in a late Victorian house, Alan will explain the complicated hierarchy between upper and lower servants, everyone’s duties, the loneliness of a half-day off, and will give a lively account of the hijinks downstairs that accompanied the long hours of drudgery.
As with all Alan’s Living History Lectures, a question-and-answer period will follow.
The suggested donation for non-members is $5.
