Cheaper by the Dozen | Frank B. Gilbreth, Ernestine Gilbreth Carey
post image

I always forget how long ago the events of CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN took place, until I reach a passage like this (side note: I worship Lillian Gilbreth more with every reading).

UrsulaMonarch It is really interesting how some of the book is timeless & some is very dated!! 2y
Christina__Cox @Lkelly Absolutely! Even though I‘ve read this before I still had to look up some of the references they made 2y
UrsulaMonarch @Christina__Cox just got to the fashion part where they are talking about women's underwear & hairstyles of the day... wow!! 2y

There are good books, and then there are books that make me sit and marvel at the fact that I get to coexist with them. This is the latter.
