Jane Tells it Clean and Tidy

[An image showing Jane Tells it Clean and Tidy]There was another meeting recently of the Library Club, which is held on an occasional basis at the Central Lending Library in Leicester.

Open to everyone with no charge, it always features a talk by a local speaker on an interesting subject.

This time it was Leicester museum curator Jane May, and her talk was called "Clean and Tidy". It was about the history of hygiene - keeping clean or otherwise over the centuries.

This fascinating talk induced lots of disgusted exclamations from the audience, especially when the subject of fleas, lice etc came up. However, everybody thoroughly enjoyed it.
