Dr Stork: A Fancy Dress Costume: 1922

Stork costume

THE OLD BOY HIMSELF, none other than Dr. Stork, mysterious deliverer of soft fluffy bundles of pinkness—and sometimes two—made his appearance at the Ayle Art Students’ Bal Masque, with G.W. Harley doing the impersonating. Needless to say, he flew off with first prize.

Mrs Daffodil is really quite speechless.


Mrs Daffodil invites you to join her on the curiously named “Face-book,” where you will find a feast of fashion hints, fads and fancies, and historical anecdotes

You may read about a sentimental succubus, a vengeful seamstress’s ghost, Victorian mourning gone horribly wrong, and, of course, Mrs Daffodil’s efficient tidying up after a distasteful decapitation in A Spot of Bother: Four Macabre Tales.
