Publisher's description: A look at the day-to-day life once lived inside the home of celebrated British architect John Soane, now a museum that attracts 100,000 visitors a year. Working in the Museum in Sir John Soane's houses at Nos. 12 and 13 Lincoln's Inn Fields, London, Susan Palmer became intrigued by questions about how the Soane family lived there two centuries ago. What did they eat? What did they drink? How did they keep warm? What was their social life like? What were their servants' daily duties? In the course of many years of research she came up with the answers to these questions and many more. This book tells the story of the Soane family's social and domestic life. It paints a vivid picture of the Soanes' house in Lincoln's Inn Fields, their family life with their two children, and the below-stairs relationships of their servants. First published by Sir John Soane's Museum in 1997 as The Soanes at Home , this Pimpernel edition has been revised by the author and includes many previously unpublished illustrations.
