I remember as a kid being allowed to stay up late to watch Monty Python’s Flying Circus. A programme my Dad loathed as he couldn’t see why it was funny, a good enough reason for me to love it then. Like many kids we would walk to school the next day (Yes, walked…. nobody had 4X4s or mums who didn’t work back then and any requests for a lift to school would have been met with an incredulous stare and a thump round the ear……but of course we had it tough) and re-enacted all the sketches we could remember... For the first time in 30 years I saw a whole episode on YouTube the other day and can see more where my dad was coming from.

Previously, we looked at what a servant in an upper house, or even in a second-class household, of the late Regency Period or early Victorian times, might encounter. Today, we wish to examine the “snobbery” found among the servant class. As mentioned in the previous’s article, the servants in upper households expected “tips” from the master’s guests. On his return, a guest might find himself in a one of the draftier bedchambers or he might be met at the train in a cart rather than an estate carriage. The servants expected the guests to conform to certain standards of gentility. John James, in The Memoirs of a House Steward , tells a tale of how, in 1895, he mistook His Grace the Duke of Westminster for a servant.

Your Guide to Buying Glasses Online

There’s no shortage of eye-care professionals who are skeptical about buying frames and lenses online. “These are custom-made devices. It’s not like buying a box of Cheerios,” explains Dr. Andrea Thau, an optometrist and president of the American Optometric Association. Prescription glasses, according to this camp, are complex medical devices—especially for people who need progressives or other multi-focal lenses, which require complicated measurements best taken while patients are wearing...

While it was true that only dubious glasses were sold online a few years ago, the market environment has...

The Future of Online Retail Is Offline

© Mike Blake / ReutersWhen Warby Parker was founded in 2010, the pitch was simple: Don't buy expensive designer eyeglasses in stores; buy cheaper ones on the Internet.It was a good pitch. It was also a financial necessity: The founders had no outside capital and it was far cheaper to build a national brand online than to open a dozen storefronts in malls across the country with debt. But as Warby Parker grew to become a darling of online retail, the founders had a funny idea. Maybe they...
