From 1909 Mr L.C. Money defined the upper middle class as those earning more than £700. From the 1901 Census, for instance, we learn that the residents of Temple Road, Rathmines, were at the upper end of the social scale. Five were members of the higher professions, six were proprietors of large businesses, such as George Jacob, the biscuit manufacturer, and five widows and two single ladies had independent means. All the households employed servants, with eleven having two, two houses having three and three households, four: two employed a male servant, which was considered a status symbol. Louie Bennett said of Temple Road in the 1880’s, it “was the refuge of highly respectable business people, anxious to escape from the social zone allotted to the world of trade and commerce” and of the people “we wore good manners all the time”
