    NB my computer, acting as though it's in charge of what I write, gave 'cafe' an acute accent. I mean of course Fred's Caff.

    It strikes me that everything in Victorian times had to be named in a way suggesting solidity, with words like "Grand" and "Imperial." I dare say Fred's Café was frowned upon.

    Back in the 70's I remember that they came out with a bikini that allowed sunlight through the material to give an all over tan. I remember them in particular because their one drawback and a lot else was revealed, they became transparent when wet.

    It wasn't expected that women should bathe every week, so Robert's great grandmom and great great granny didn't.

    That's why Great Grandpappy Brown was locked up for wearing one.

    Victorian female bathing costumes could be very revealing when wet, think wet T shirt contests.

    I suppose, by the same token, that 'Jack the Ripper' was considered in the LVP to be more polite than 'Jack the Eviscerator'.

    I like that part about "dressing" a bird being more polite than "stuffing" a bird. Amazing!

    Although it was Not Done for ladies to be seen swimming, Great Grandmammy Brown found a loophole and was seen drowning in a very daring costume.
