Ardgowan: A Journal of House Prince Edward Island and Garden in Victorian by Julie V WatsonArdgowan: A Journal of House and Garden in Victorian Prince Edward Island

by Julie V. Watson

 

 “Imagination fills in the blanks in history as we take you back to the genteel life in the era of the Birth of Canada, sharing food preparation, medicinal receipts and fun facts about 1864.”

Glimpse into life in the home of William H. Pope and his wife Helen during the 1860s.  One of the Fathers of Confederation, Pope and his large family lived on a country estate in Charlottetown, as he pursued a career as a politician and entrepreneur.

 As Ardgowan: A Journal of House and Garden in Prince Edward Island unfolds, the author takes readers on a tour of Charlottetown in 1864, giving a glimpse of day to day life: winter travelling, gardening, games played by children and adults, fashion, social etiquette and more.  Chapters on the seasons focus on social activities: picnics, garden parties, the pomp and circumstance of the Charlottetown Conference that began the Confederation process, and yule season holidays.  As well each seasonal chapter contains recipes, garden information, household hints and medicinal “receipts”.

 Also included: a look at the preservation of the house and grounds, work done by Parks Canada to establish the house as a Historic Site and what visitors will find when visiting today.

Wonderfully illustrated in keeping with the era represented.
