landlordSan Francisco Chronicle, March 30, 1898. Again with the tumbler full of acid! Though I suppose if you make your living as a “Parisian dressmaker” it may make sense to keep such a thing ready at hand. Think of it as extra-strength pepper spray for the working girl.


  1. Indeed, what’s with all these people keeping tumblers of acid around their houses? Was that a common thing back in the day?

  2. Too common for the common good, evidently. But acid doesn’t blind people: people blind people.
