Meet the Bowlers Ask the Bowlers Interview with Joyce and Hilary


  Twins Ruth and Hilary, age 11, got a break from their usual routine at Duke of York's Royal Military School in Dover, Kent. Ruth was eager to learn more about the real history of the Victorians, and since her stay at THE 1900 HOUSE has become greatly interested in the turn-of-the-century suffragette movement. She especially enjoyed pursuing her photography hobby with a vintage Brownie camera and a Victorian fashion photo shoot with her sisters in the backyard.
