is this from 1916?? Sure is this advert not everything against equal rights?? suitable MEN yards MEN. MAN to help in k( presumably kitchen) garden.
There should be no place for such an advert in our current world!
hopefully this shows how far we have come!!
thanks Patrick, but once you realised that this was from 1916 (there are more than a few hints), you probably should have stopped there.
i posted it only as a tiny snapshot of life 100 years ago, and we intend posting many more interesting pieces for the rest of the year.
