      In the context of the history of the 20th century, the interwar period was the period between the end of the First World War on Novem and the beginning of the Second World War on September 1, This period is also colloquially referred to as Between the Wars.. Despite the relatively short period of time, this period represented an era of significant changes worldwide. In his paper, Scott brings out critical issues as the theme of his discussion such as the: effects of the suburban housing lifestyle on fertility rates among the working class, their budget consumption patterns and the overall household expenditures, the working-class’ process of adapting suburbanization and the property acquirement process during interwar.

      This study spans the two decades between the two World Wars and looks at the lives of those women known as the gallant girls of wartime who were subsequently told to go back to the home when the war finished. The author covers all classes, looks at the media images of women, their education, employment, health, politics and leisure habits. Many stories told in this book are of women without.   We can draw a number of parallels between the housing market of the 19th century and that of today. Just as housing reformers of the late s recognised that central and local government were the only agents capable of easing the problems of slum housing and high prices, so today’s commentators argue that the current situation demands.

      The opening scene of Atonement is set in country-house England of We witness the landed gentry at play, their privileged lives made possible by the regiments of uniformed domestic servants, who cook and clean and wash. The apprehensions of war - just four years away - are present only in the outer reaches of the field of vision.   Burdett-Coutts was concerned with the needs of many and in many areas such as housing, water supply, supporting military wives, child labor and education. An report on the Poor Law made it clear that there was a “duty to promote the religious and moral education of the laboring classes” with an emphasis on literacy in order for all.

Abstract. FROM the very earliest stages of the Second World War observers were sure that British class distinctions were being broken down. Vivienne Hall was a middle-class spinster in her early thirties, who lived at home with her mother in Putney in South West London, and worked as a shorthand-typist for the Northern Assurance Company in the City.

Despite uniting in a common aim when War broke out inthere was a huge divide between those of rich and poorer backgrounds. For those born into a position of wealth, they were able to benefit from a relatively healthy lifestyle of sports, good food and opulent housing, which for the most part was run by indentured help in the form of lower class servants and butlers, many of which lived.

The First World War marked a watershed in British house construction. For the first time, the large-scale provision of working class housing became the responsibility of the state while the building of middle class homes for owner occupiers was subject to new pressures, such as the arrival of electricity, the rise of the motor car and the expansion of a servantless lower middle class.
