‘Aged Beauties’: an appreciation of the beauty of older women, as reported in 1874

Here’a a very interesting and aesthetic newspaper article from 1874, which celebrates famous women aged over 30.

Truly, even during the Victorian era, there was still life even after one had crossed the ‘turned 30’ and ‘the big 40’ demographic rubicons!
