It makes me shudder to see the dances going on between young men and women nowadays. There is no modesty or decency in them. They are a part of the newfangled fashions that contribute their share to the danger to the morals of our people. We import our fashions from London, who gets them from Paris, who in turn imports theirs straight from Hell.
American Dance Manual, 1921
I’m going to start using that last sentence for EVERYTHING.
(via sewonandsewforth) Agreed - fashions from Hell via Paris is an awesome line (via sydneyflapper)
