Etiquette & Elbowgrease Housekeeping in Victorian New Zealand
by Miriam Macgregor

Paperback, 1976, 77pages, good condition

"This interesting and informative book offers a look at housekeeping in Victorian New Zealand where the research revealed that there was no definite point where their housekeeping began or ended, showing that without them, many of the men at that time would not have been able to retain their holdings. Victorian men at this time held strict opinions concerning the place of women in the community, for her place was in the home - taking care of everything that applied to the family, the caring of children, the preparing of meals, washing, ironing, household duties, as well as balancing the manual work which was to be done outside, such as caring for the vegetable garden, as well as helping with planting, sowing, hoeing, harvesting, clearing and burning shrub."
