This image from a 1910 Femina cover was actually borrowed from a German magazine. The caption reads: “Women, they say, are subject to vertigo. Here’s proof to the contrary: this intrepid worker, operating at 35 meters above the ground, is not American, as one might think. It’s actually over the roofs of Berlin that she throws herself into her dangerous work.”
In addition to the almost surrealist imagery, I love the messaging embedded here. Just like the image on the header to this blog of the mountain climber, a woman is shown, literally, reaching new heights.
