This is Why You Should Never Make Faces at a Copper

Why not have a laugh 1914-style and enjoy Daisy Doodad's Dial? It is actually laugh out loud funny, and really wonderful to see the humour of a by-gone age...oh, and it does put pay to the myth that British, turn of the century females were all ever-so proper, never mind what Florence B Jack's The Woman's Book has to say on the subject!

A lady's manners should be perfect on all occasions. Manners cannot be donned and discarded at will... When she entertains, she is apast master in the art of asking the right people to meet each other and of making them all feel at ease in her society.
