Ladies Must Wear Heels

No surprise to read that women have apparently been banned from parading on the 'red carpet' at Cannes because they were not wearing Birkenstocks. Sorry- that should have read, banned because they were not wearing high heels, and preferably, very high heels. 

Plus ca change. Above is a little illustration accompanying a 70's catalogue ad for an escape ladder that can be tipped out of a window for use in emergencies- such as unforeseen fires. But ladies should note, high heels must be donned before embarking on evacuation. Women will be banned from rescue if they do not follow the proscribed dress code.

Another drawing that hasn't quite worked out as I hoped. Enough time wasted; nailing my colours to the mast, so to speak.
