The Cookery Class

This photograph, taken in the early 1900s, shows a school cookery class. The societal view at the time determined that cooking and sewing were for girls, woodwork and metalwork for boys and their purpose was to enable the children to make a living, not as a hobby. The plethora of cookery programmes on TV over the last few decades and our enlightened view of gender roles mean that cookery is something we can all share, either by doing or watching it.
