""A Practical Handbook for the Home" is a most useful and practical volume" - "The British Weekly". In the 1930s Arthur & Lillie Horth wrote a series of books intended for all the family. Their "101 Things" series of volumes took the publishing world by storm, selling many tens of thousands of copies to men, women, boys and girls alike. Following on from the success of "101 Things for a Boy to Do" and "101 Things for the Handyman to Make", Tempus brings the follow up volumes for Housewives and Girls. In the days before television, when radio was a luxury for some households, the book provided hours of good wholesome entertainment and practical advice for the housewife. In it she would learn about decoration, colour schemes, cleaning and fun things like making a window garden or even how to do basic diy and how to make dolls' furniture. The modern housewife is likely to be amazed at the range of talents her 1930s equivalent could have.
