Mrs. Bridges' Story. - Mollie Hardwick Here is another view of "UPSTAIRS DOWNSTAIRS" that is both poignant and insightful.

This is a very touching story, told by Mrs. Bridges (the cook for the Bellamy family) in 1913, of her life, which began in North London, where her parents owned a modest sweetshop, to a boarding house in Bayswater (where she first had the opportunity to perfect her budding culinary skills), to her position as Chief Cook at 165 Eaton Place.
