Not only was it table legs, but even MORE so piano legs ! THEY were REALLY "obscene" in those days ! ! !
Myth. A bunch of hokum. Some people love to ridicule the Victorians, even if they have to make up silly stories to do it.
anything and everything was covered. ankles were too sexy to be seen. but when they are seen is when they lose their attraction. any how, ya. and more in America than in Europe. Americans always go crazy on fads more than any one else. just look at atkins!!

No, they really did, as an exposed leg is still an exposed leg
that a pile of tish tosh
No it's true .
