Letting Off Steam: Working Class Girls' Leisure in Inter-war London
Thursday, July 5, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM (BST)

In the inter-war period was it all work and no play for working class girls? Drawing upon oral testimony and contemporary reports, the ways in which girls made instrumental use of work to gain access to leisure during the inter-war years will be explored by Dr Katherine Milcoy.
