School boys, working people and housewives either get up around 5 or 6 am or even earlier. Breakfast is a matter of breaking someone’s fast on arising. Breakfast was not considered the most important meal of the day. A man who can’t cadge a dinner invitation may say he is “dining with Duke Humphrey tonight.” Many house didn’t have a proper kitchen, you could cook over the hearth, or prepare your food and take it to a cook shop and pick it up later. You can make your own bread and then take it to a baker and they will cook it for a fee. I learned that the housewives have to get up really early. I also learned that they didn't think breakfast is the most important meat of the day.
