This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
Bra - better than the steamboat, really - the Awesome World of Things
As a publishing luminary of the expatriate bohemian scene in
late-'20s Paris, Caresse Crosby helped launch the careers of D.H.
Lawrence, Ernest Hemingway and James Joyce. Years earlier, as a
19-year-old Manhattan socialite, she laid the groundwork for a fashion
revolution when she and the family maid used two silk handkerchiefs,
pink ribbon, and a cord to produce a forerunner to the modern bra. She
patented her "backless brassiere" and then sold the patent to the Warner
Bros. Corset Co. the following year for $1500. Writing later in life,
she said: "I can't say the brassiere will ever take as great a place in
history as the steamboat, but I did invent it." - Popular Mechanics.
