Enter the world of five generations of Ireland's middle classes

Enter the comfortable world of five generations of Ireland's middle classes: from the 1880s, when ladies could not go out at night without a chaperone; to 1907 when the Ascendancy set the social tone; to the 1930s when the cocktail party was the latest thing; to the fondue-set style of the 1960s; the 1980s and the beginning of the boom. Using contemporary documents, publications and photographs, Tony Farmar builds a vivid and entertaining picture of how the middle class lived, exploring the deep divisions created by gender, class and religion.
