How To Stay "Sharp" In More Ways Than One

Very interesting piece on how on Edwardian self defense. This is an excerpt that I translated with a photo from a San Francisco newspaper that discussed about the long 13 inch hatpins called "stingers". These pins were an excellent weapon for self defense for women. If an aggressor approaches, just reach for that pin and let them have it! Men had their canes, the ladies their hat pins. My Mom sent one back to QVC home shopping that was designed by Diane von F├╝rstenberg years ago. It was a very long pin and she wasn't fond of the dangerous length. I wish she had of kept it, now. This is how to stay sharp in more than one way ladies! Courtesy of Recreaciones Hist├│ricas Club Fin de Siglo. Love their page!
