Re: Guard Your Cash

That's an interesting skirt length - perfectly reasonable for today, but "interesting" for a heroine figure in 1902.

I can only imagine the crowd reaction if a girl actually wore that on the street back then.

[I believe the figure in the poster is supposed to represent an ancient warrior goddess, along the lines of a Wagnerian valkyrie. Which I suppose would catch some attention on the streets of Dayton even today. - tterrace]

With a hat

At least four women at the front are involved in making those frilly crêpe paper-covered hat-like things: containers, apparently, but I can't figure the cash register angle.

Also, there's one in every crowd:

Guard Your Cash

Wonder Woman circa 1902.
