Hints and Hobbies No.10 1926

14 mins United Kingdom

Brilliantly bonkers, Hints and Hobbies is the series that keeps on giving! This tenth instalment is, as ever, packed with fashion tips for skinflint flappers (how to improvise a Grecian toga from a curtain); first aid advice (how to treat a burn with baking soda and hot coffee) and other invaluable daily stratagems - how to darn wool, swim doggy-paddle and attain a "girlish figure".
