Book of Etiquette

There are rare gems to be found over at the YCN library. We recently came across this book of 1930's etiquette, according to Vogue. Its detailed do's and don'ts for social appropriateness are totally outrageous and refreshingly unPC. It's a hilarious read, citing such corkers as, 'children should be seen and not heard', with some neat illustrations too.

We now know how to correctly tip our hat (at any given situation) and correctly pour our tea. Essentials.
