DYK? Australian Etiquette dictates…

I’m enjoying the bizarrity of finding this book at the State Library of Victoria today:

Published in 1885, it’s pretty thorough on the type of behavior expected from true-blue Aussie ladies and gentlemen. How to propose marriage, how to accept or reject them. How to grow your beard, how to deal with hangnails.

I like today’s Australia better – struth!
