Following on from an earlier blog post Hints for Unmarried Girls,
I found another, with the much earlier date of 1903,
this time in the Clarence and Richmond Examiner (Grafton, NSW).
As the article finishes: poor unmarried girls, what hope did they have?
What a pity they didn't include photos or sketches of the 'nose types'!
Some of the descriptive terms are interesting:
'aesthetic finish of the tip of the nose',
'moderate hum on its upper half',
You don't hear descriptions like that anymore.
Must go and check my husband's nose :)
