#47 - Crinoline Ladies

From Victorian femininity to toilet roll cover, Dr Kathryn Ferry looks at the curious history of the Crinoline Lady.

It began as an image of Victorian femininity, became a 1920s style icon, and perhaps ended as a 1970s toilet roll cover. Dr Kathryn Ferry looks at the curious history of the Crinoline Lady, exploring the growth of suburbia, Gone With The Wind and 'crinolinemania'.

James Ward introduces another curious talk about a subject that may seem boring, but is actually very interesting.... maybe.
