German maids posted 16th February 1918
I found an interesting piece in an old newspaper, Myra’s Journal of Dress and Fashion – Tuesday 1st December 1891 – “Employments for Ladies, Ladies as Domestic Servants” “In the next issue I hope to give details of the various schools of housekeeping where a through training in every branch of housework may be obtained. The maid, be it remembered, is not infrequently changed into the wife, and none rules so well as she who has learnt to obey, and whose knowledge of her kingdom has been gained by practice not theory.”
