On the lining or back side of each "page" will be a vintage ad or two. I began collecting them when I started the suffrage project as they were so much a part of women's lives at that time.
Some are elegant, some are humorous and some are frightening. The ones I didn't save are the ones advertising corsets for pregnant women and corsets for young children. Here are a few that will probably make the cut for the books.
How about the "Princess Hip" or the "Dowager" that will properly reduce stout figures to correct proportions. What's with the spider element?
And there were a lot of whimsical ads which I'm sure were meant to target the young ladies with romance on their minds.....
Just the ads themselves would be a great set of blocks. I even gave that a thought at the beginning but opted for the "real" girls but happy to find a way in incorporate the ads into the project.
