Episode 4

ABC TEA! Activism, Brothers and the other Cranston Tearooms

This episode we learn about early salon culture and the suffragettes who inspired the Salon de Luxe colour scheme, Miss Cranston’s other tea rooms (including the Oak room now at the V&A) and Stuart Cranston: coffee fiend and rival to our own Kate.  We round off by pondering Victorian cocktails and remain mostly unconvinced.
