Follow our fictional friend Johanna on her Grand Tour.

  1. No debutante would use the term “high tea” in her correspondance; she would use the term “afternoon tea”. High tea was the more substantial late afternoon or early evening meal for working class folks.

  2. Lovely, everything is so wonderful, and so much fun, I love the flower name’s and the victorian photos I can share. thank you for all! Kay Stafford
