Peeresses coronation fears allayed. Coronet with new device cannot become disslodged
Peeresses coronation fears allayed.
Coronet with new device cannot become disslodged.
Correct set for ceremony shown in London.
Peeresses and other titled guests at the Coronation ceremony in Westminster Abbey will be relieved of their greatest worry, the set of their coronets by the invention of a Manchester hairdresser, Mr H Kavanagh.
By a neat, but simple device consisting of two small combs Mr Kavanagh has overcome the embarrasing possibility of the coronet becoming dislodged or actually falling at a critical moment this series of pictures shows the correct method wearing the coronet and the decided advantage of the new device.
No special coiffure is needed.
Photo shows, the head titled, showing how the coronet is socuroly retained.
