This is an advertisement for Evan's pumice stone. It was very important for the Victorians to take care of their bodies. It was fashionable for women to be pale and to have soft skin to demonstrate that they did not have to work. They tried many potions and mixtures to ensure that their skin was delicate and fragile. The pumice stone, still used today, was an essential tool for keeping feet that had been squashed into fashionable pointed shoes, smooth and soft.
