Victorian beauty advertisements, and other misc ads
Here’s some scans from the back pages of The Delineator advertising beauty products, pianos, silverware, oil lamps, manners books, flowers, and washing machines.
It’s especially interesting to see the illustrated washing machine ad, since I cannot imagine washing clothing without electricity!
Also, in these pages, the “Answers to Correspondences” section continues, with some fashion advice that a winter dress for a blonde may be made of wood-brown cloth, and that small hats are most becoming to short people (and are more fashionable than toques).
