OFGs in 1910

Post about everything from carrying a handkerchief to manly skills (sharpening a pocket knife, etc.) to product reviews of items that may have slipped under our radar (e.g. - Grandpa's Pine Tar soap). No threads on anything "new" unless it harkens to old-fashioned sensibilities and ideals.

My dad was born in 1910, passed away in 2010, 6 months after his 100th birthday celebration. He shared many stories that I wish I had recording of.
I think my grandmother and aunts washed their hair more often than once a month, though, contrary to the posted link.
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)
