Pasadena Museum of History offers Victorian etiquette luncheon salon Thursday

Behave Yourself!
Manners for Proper Ladies and Gentlemen

January 27 Luncheon and Salon at Altadena Town and Country Club
Spotlights Victorian-era Customs

Social calls, table manners, courtship, appropriate dress, and other intricacies of etiquette in the early 1900s take the spotlight in an elegant Luncheon Salon on Thursday, January 27, 12:30 pm at the Altadena Town and Country Club.

This event is presented by Pasadena Museum of History in conjunction with the current exhibition, Pasadena Patron: The Life and Legacy of Eva Scott Fenyes, which explores the social and cultural worlds of Victorian/Edwardian-era Pasadena. Walter and Sheila Nelson, Cultural Historians-in-Residence during the run of the Pasadena Patron exhibition, serve as our hosts in an entertaining and enlightening foray into the social customs that guided the lives of “proper ladies and gentlemen” 100 years ago – and still influence our behavior today.

The Altadena Town & Country Club is located at 2290 Country Club Dr., Altadena. Tickets: $45 Museum and Country Club Members; $50 Non-Members. Reservations and additional information are available online at or by calling 626-577-1660, ext. 10.
