The Mistress has sent out the 'At Home' invitation cards, but what will happen on the day?<br /><br />Why did the family eat such big meals in Edwardian times? Even with water closets in place why was urine collected from chamber pots every morning? <br /><br />Why would you earn more as a footman if you were a twin? What was life like for a maid of all works?<br /><br />Want to find the answers to these, and many more questions about Edwardian life in a Scottish country house?<br /><br />From 13th July till October 31st 2013 take a walk back in time to 1900-10 when Pollok House was in its heyday. Talk with our guides, who will be dressed in authentic Edwardian costume, they have the answers to your questions.<br /><br />Please note there is no costume interpretation on Fridays. Please phone ahead to find out who will be &quot;At Home&quot; on any given day.
