‘WFH’ – a new concept that, with developing technology, is going to revolutionize our lives, and our cities. Or is it?
Social historian Judith Flanders, the author of The Making of Home and The Victorian City: Everyday Life in Dickens’ London, examines the history of houses, and homes, and shows how houses turned into homes as work moved from something you did at home, whether you were a doctor, a lawyer, a shopkeeper or a pieceworker, and into factories and offices.
And just as now, the range of dazzling new technologies – from transport, to communications, to labour-saving devices – appeared in tandem with this shift, to revolutionize both the public and private spheres.
