Fête XVIIIth Century - the Programme Lady

Copyright 2009 Monte Carlo Daily Photo. All rights reserved.

As you can see in the small photograph, the man handing out the wine tries to persuade the young lady (who hands out the programmes) to have some wine. She looks a little unsure and then agrees.

I wonder if they had red nail polish in the XVIIIth century?

We see the Palace in the background - note the weather, low cloud over le rocher and humid that morning. No wonder the wine was welcome.

Dear Jilly, we are in Monaco! Of course they had nail polish even at that time ;- )

Ye olde nail polish!

I love those little goblets(?) they're drinking out of.
