|Downton Abbey on PBS|
Are you a fan of the British drama television series Downton Abbey, or curious to learn what all the commotion is about? Join us behind the scenes as historian Tames Alan talks about and displays period images that show realities of life and work “downstairs” on a great British estate before WWI.
At the time, more than 50% of Britain's population was "in service," so it's no surprise that half the plot of the popular Downton Abbey series takes place below stairs.
Life in Service at Downton Abbey, Thursday, February 25, 2016, 7-8pm in the meeting room at Richmond Beach Library, 19601 21st Ave NW, Shoreline 98177.
