Post image for At Your Service: Domestics in the Gilded Age

Tues Aug 28 @ 1pm – What was it really like to be a domestic worker during the Gilded Age?

Join the library and the Frick Pittsburgh for a fact-filled companion lecture to our September luncheon spotlighting Carnegie’s Maid.

Using the home of Henry Clay Frick as a backdrop, this picture presentation offers a behind-the-scenes perspective of what –and who—it took to run the lavish mansions of wealthy American industrialists in Pittsburgh during the late 19th century.

Pull up a chair to explore this real life Downton Abbey and Upstairs Downstairs! Domestic artifacts of the time period will be on display!
