Photo-a-day 94: Services of a solicitor

CZ20140424105333554

I found this book on the floor behind my desk at work. It’s approximately twice my age. The casual sexism on every page is really quite disturbing. There’s a whole chapter called “Does your wife drive the car?”. I think it’s sometimes easy to forget the degree of (very welcome) social change that’s been experienced over the last century.
