.... and yet the "Willendorf Venus", a very buxom, stylised prehistoric stone figure, is banned as "pornographic" by at least one site!
Compared to many "twerking" female celebrities, she's positively modest!

Perhaps the description was "fine tuned" to fit with the status of whatever family the offspring were marrying in to?

I think "Bazaar" was one of those terms used a lot in the late 19th / early 20th C, especially where people actually made the things offered for sale, usually for charitable causes - but I suspect so many spelling errors were made with the word on posters  - I've seen "Bazzar", Bazzaar", as well as "Bazaar" and even - appropriately "Bizzare" and "Bizarre" - that it was easier to use "Fair" or "Fayre".

Perhaps I'll drop the name to an organiser/ talk finder of talks to U3A and local History Groups. May work?

Well, we've been busy heaving all the heavy garden furniture into their winter storage homes.... nowhere now to sit down in the garden, except the comparatively lightweight metal, glass-topped table and a couple of chairs, that, after hosing down and drying out will then move to nest in the conservatory, for winter breakfasts, sun permitting, until spring next year.
-Gulp! That means it's really autumn.
Hoping to get out a "Fleece up" the vulnerable plants in the next day or so.
Off for a hot bath now. Radox here I come!

What a fantastic idea! Pity I'm far away. It sounds really good.

My OH's great grandfather was born and baptised Anglican, in Wales, but before his marriage to an Irish immigrant Roman Catholic woman, he was baptised into the Roman Catholic Faith, in Wigan. almost 20 years between the two events, but - it did happen.
