Content: Printed on border: "The generations of fashions. 755" "The turbans and bonnets of this epoch were equally extravagant. The coiffures of the ladies became so high that the face seemed to be in the middle of their bodies; and the director of the Opera was compelled to make a rule that no lady with a head-dress above a certain height should be admitted into the ampitheatre, because the spectators were unable on account of them to see the stage."
