Teen-Age Know-How From 1946

From my collection of etiquette books, a few pages from Your Manners Are Showing, by Betty Betz (1946).

First, how to be a proper street walker, for him and her.

Don't tell naughty jokes!

I'm not sure if this last one is to say that eating while walking in public is rude (who hasn't eaten an ice cream cone thus?) -- or is a warning to ladies to satisfy her man at home...

Charmed? I'm sure; but find your own copy on eBay.

I had the pleasure of reading Your Manners Are Showing back in 2003 or 2004. What a hoot of book!
