Talk to your partner about it.:  This is Topsfield Hall that used to be in Crouch End, built in 1791. The year is 1879 and one of the daughters of the house, Clementina, is getting married here! What do you think the wedding will be like? Talk to your partner about it. Slide3:  What can you tell about Victorian weddings from these pictures? Images from http://www.victoriana.com YOU are invited to the wedding:  Mr and Mrs Henry Weston Elder request the pleasure of your company at the wedding of their daughter Miss Clementina Elder of Topsfield Hall, Crouche End to Mr Frank May of Elstree at St Mary's Church, Hornsey at 12pm, on 4th June, in this year of 1879 We would be delighted to receive you at Topsfield Hall for a wedding breakfast immediately after the ceremony. RSVP ~ The household would be grateful if you could make clear your intention as to whether you will be able to attend this fine day. Please reply to Topsfield Hall, in the manor of CroucheEnd, Middlesex God Save the Queen YOU are invited to the wedding Slide5:  Can you send your reply to the wedding invite. How did they do that in 1879 in Crouch End? ? Slide6:  Discuss which methods of communication you could use from the list below: Would you have replied ... in person? by electric telegraph? by email? by pigeon? by post? NO. Bell's telephone was invented in 1876 but would have only been available for the very, very wealthy at this time. YES! neighbours would have had a servant hand deliver their reply MAYBE! The first public telegraph lines were laid in 1845 so you may well have replied by telegraph. However, Crouch End was only a small village in 1879 and may not have had a line. NO! the first email was sent in 1971 in America from a computer to the computer next to it! NO! Guests would have been unlikely to have used pigeon, though it was a very reliable form of post for many years. The ancient Greeks used pigeons to tell of the Olympic victors and the British army used pigeons in the Second World War. YES! The Penny Post was invented in 1840. This was the first postage stamp and was known as the 'penny black'. It made posting letters much cheaper and easier, as did the introduction of the post box in 1855. by telephone? Slide7:  Activity: Write your reply YOU ARE You have chosen to reply by postcard and post it. You are from a successful business family in Hackney. Though you are of the right class to be invited 'carriage folk', you are not incredibly wealthy, and you are careful with your money. You wish to reply that you can come and you want to tell your friends in Topsfield Hall some news about how you and the family have been - any ideas? You want to make the most of your space on the card so write both ways to make the most of the space, like in the example shown. Design a stamp! The Penny stamp must have Queen Victoria's head on it but will not say Great Britain. Bonus point - do you know who invented the Penny Black and where he lived? It's a local CASTLE Slide8:  postcard template for reply resources: Slide9:  How was the letter delivered? by stagecoach? by the horse drawn mail coaches? by train? by car?
