Edwardian Curse Words

I'm looking for some authentic lingo for my far, I think she would enjoy saying "My giddy aunt!"

She's a bit obsessed with modern women (ah, the 1920s)...any good dialect suggestions?

I have also ordered a copy of her two favorite books, since I have never read, these are not the real figure's favorites, but the ones I conceived of for her...the Egyptian book of the Dead, and Virginia Wolf's first novel.

Think I need to go watch some more history channel to get firmly in the mood...

  2. Oooo thanks! You have all the best resources at your fingertips!

  3. How about "Well, strike me pink and knock me down with a feather!" That was in vogue around that time - my mother used to say it.
