Life back in the 1800s was not what it seemed. It was different, very different. So here is a brief look at their daily life !
Now, in our days, people think that men work a lot, but then the woman worked 24 hours a day, many cleaning dishes, washing clothes and getting dinner ready for their family all by hand, with no machines.
Back in the 1800’s there were a lot of rules, some applied for children and some for adults.
Here are some important ones:
- Bonnets and hats were always worn in public
- Everyone stood to attention when singing the National Anthem.
- Children should be seen and not heard at the dinner table
- Children were punished by smacking, even at school!
As you can see there has been a lot of changes since now and then, some good and some bad.
