Children! January's Aether Salon

Sunday, January 24, 2010

Sunday, January 17 saw the Aether Salon welcome Miss Saffia Widdershins, Master Jimmy Branagh and Miss Myrtil Igaly discuss the topic of children.

"Those little darlings. The heirs to your throne. Washed and in their jammies, your children are true blessings. You pause. Is that smoke you smell? You hear giggling and footsteps racing up to the nursery. Getting up from your easy chair you discover the little darlings have been playing with incendiaries again. Oh, the joys of parenthood!

What was it like to be a Victorian child? What is it like to play a child in Babbage? The speakers imparted their wisdom to a full Salon!

Photographs from the event can be found in a Flickr album.
