Those Quirky Victorians : 2018 Ladies Who Lunch

at the Lake County History Center 415 Riverside Dr., Painesville, OH

July 19, 2018  12-2 pm

Etiquette and social norms of the Victorians were complicated by peculiar beliefs & superstitions: a preoccupation with death & mourning; elaborate & exhaustive rules of etiquette; odd, even painful, fashions dictated by one’s standing in society. Strange hobbies, foods, literature & music – these were all a part of the times known as the Victorian era. Come join us as we examine the quirks of the period and compare how things have changed for better or for worse. Dine while you enjoy the presentation.

This is part of a fun, educational series returning for the summer months on three Thursdays at noon. There will be a light lunch, followed by a presentation on summer topics.

Note: Minimum 15 people to run the program. Reservations required.

Cost: $18 (non-LCHS member); $15 (LCHS member discount). Ticket includes presentation & meal. Buy online:    by mail, or by phone: Need more information?  Call 440-639-2945.
