Requirements: .ePUB reader, 9.04 MB
Overview: The true story of the artist whose high school years in Massachusetts inspired Riverdale.

Bob Montana, creator of the Archie comic strip and one of America’s greatest cartoonists, always considered himself a true New Englander. Filled with the antics of the rambunctious teenagers of the fictional Riverdale High, Montana’s comic strip was based on his high school years in Haverhill, Massachusetts.

At the height of his career, he lived as a beloved resident in the quaint, picturesque town of Meredith in the heart of the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. For nearly thirty years, he was considered an extraordinarily respected contributor to the community. Drawing from the Yankee humor he saw around him, Montana deftly included local scenes, events, and characters in the puns and pranks of Archie’s comic-strip life. Join Lakes Region historian Carol Lee Anderson as she takes readers beyond the comic strip and tells the story of the remarkable New England life of Bob Montana.

England, Slaves and Freedom, 1776-1838 by James Walvin

England, Slaves and Freedom, 1776-1838 by James Walvin
Requirements: .PDF reader, 19.9 Mb
Overview: By the mid years of the seventeenth century the English prided themselves on their newly secured social and political freedoms. At much the same time, however, they had begun to develop their own slave colonies in the New World. By the mid-eighteenth century, the English has become the world’s pre-eminent slaving nation, shipping millions of Africans from their homelands into the Americas, for the material well-being of European nations. Yet slavery, which brought so much diverse prosperity to Britain was ended, in British possessions, in a relatively brief period. In the space of fifty years first the slave trade and then slavery itself was abolished by Parliament. This book seeks to explore that process by studying abolition and emancipation as a species of popular politics. Moreover one crucial element in the complex political formula which created black freedom was black socity itself – in Britain and the West Indies. But the wider transformation, from slavery to black freedom, took place in the determining context of a changing British economy; of the emergence of the British industrial revolution. Thus this book seeks to tell the story of how a society which was, at once, proud of its internal liberties and yet a slaving nation, came to bestow similar freedoms on its slaves.

A Necessary Luxury Tea in Victorian England by Julie E. Fromer

A Necessary Luxury: Tea in Victorian England by Julie E. Fromer
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 3.6MB
Overview: Tea drinking in Victorian England was a pervasive activity that, when seen through the lens of a century’s perspective, presents a unique overview of Victorian culture. Tea was a necessity and a luxury; it was seen as masculine as well as feminine; it symbolized the exotic and the domestic; and it represented both moderation and excess. Tea was flexible enough to accommodate and to mark subtle differences in social status, to mediate these differences between individuals, and to serve as a shared cultural symbol within England.

In A Necessary Luxury: Tea in Victorian England, Julie E. Fromer analyzes tea histories, advertisements, and nine Victorian novels, including Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Wuthering Heights, and Portrait of a Lady. Fromer demonstrates how tea functions within the literature as an arbiter of taste and middle-class respectability, aiding in the determination of class status and moral position. She reveals the way in which social identity and character are inextricably connected in Victorian ideology as seen through the ritual of tea.
