Debutantes: a video

Featured today at Two Nerdy History Girls, a look into a lost world.

The Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, the Duke of Wellington, Lady Macmillan, and others recall the debutante season of 1939 and life during the war. This is 45 minutes long, but I found it fascinating.

Oh, and Samuel West (William Elliot, Persuasion, 1995) narrates!
