Downton Abbey Forgot Water Bottles Didn't Exist in 1924

"Guys, what year is it? I can’t tell because of my water bottle. Oh, it’s the 1920s? Crap." These are the thoughts of whomever left their plastic bottle behind during a Downton Abbey promotional shot of the Earl of Grantham and Lady Edith Crawley, according to the Daily Mail.
