This is the story of Mr Wilfred John. By Harry Almey

The Edwardian era. The styles, policies, and ways of living during the short reign of King Edward VII(1901-1910.) It marked the end of the 65 year-old Victorian era for Britain and the peak of the Empire’s power. But if it was the peak, there was only one way:down. But what was life for the rich upper class, whose power ballooned during Edwards time? This is the story of Mr Wilfred John.
