  Georgians At Home

Joe, the Footman is talking to Jenkins, the Valet after a long day of work. The footman is heading outside to deliver a letter and he talks about how amazing Bath is and how many people have travelled here for the season. As you leave the museum don’t forget to take a photo with the sedan chair outside the shop door! This is what a lot of rich people would have travelled in to get around the city, carried by two very strong servants.
