lureAChicago Tribune, January 18, 1921. Well, this scenario isn’t exactly as described in Mr. Kipling’s famous poem “The Vampire,” but the basic message is the same: Men are boobs, see?lure2AAThink of that: the poor kid went out with a carnival company and still the men bothered her!lure3ASome of this dialog strikes me as a tad stilted and silent-movie-title-card-ish. But then maybe these two love birds were huge movie buffs. Lovely, hope-filled ending, anyway.

    “sent to the bridewell” sent me to the dictionary. Sounds like some more time was spent in the bridewell.

  1. For the benefit of our less motivated readers:
    “Bridewell , area in London, England, between Fleet St. and the Thames River. The Bridewell house of correction, demolished in 1863, was on the site of a palace built under Henry VIII and given by Edward VI to the City of London in 1553 for use as a training school for homeless apprentices. The building later became a prison. Bridewell thus came to be used as a general term for a prison or house of correction.”
