Manolo asks, whose shoes?
Manolo answers, the Queen Mother Elizabeth!
Congratulations to the Manolo’s long time interent friend the Phyllis, who came up with the correct answer the mere eleven minutes after the Manolo asked the question. Indeed, the Manolo was mightily impressed by all of his friends who said the Queen Mum, as he thought this question was quite difficult.
By the way, the amusing and endearing picture on the left is from 1949, during one of the three periods in the 20th century when the platform shoes were stylish. The other two occured in the 1930s and in the 1970s. Of the course, we are now at the end of the first revival of the platforms in the 21st century.
