A Pretty Sight in Paris



News-Commentary, Drollery


Phrenology, Gender, Amusement

    Discusses the latest Parisian fashion in hair—having one's hair 'simply braided'. Suggests that a phrenologist seeing the braids would conclude that his subject had prominent faculties 'of modesty and candour' but mere cavities for 'vanity and folly'.
