Atiya Fyzee’s travelogue provides a glimpse not only of grand public gatherings and prestigious social engagements, but also of the so-called everyday: a world that is routine and even mundane. A form of informal ethnography, Atiya’s travelogue contains accounts of food and cooking in Britain during the Edwardian period, along with gardening, the weather, religion, leisure, and travel. Atiya also wrote about the day-to-day realities of friendships, college life, and what it meant in practical terms to study at a women’s teacher training college of the period. She was particularly impressed by the English servants when compared to those back in her native India.

Keywords:   Atiya Fyzee, travelogue, training college, Edwardian period, food, cooking, servants, friendships, college life, gardening
