    I think she’s meant to be a lion tamer.

    Although being the late 60′s I’m sure the visual double-entendre was intentional.

    The girl is wearing riding clothes; riding boots, breeches, show coat, and bowler. But the whip looks like a Stock Whip

    I’d bet a dollar she doesn’t own a horse or a lion.

    Yeah, without the whip, life would be rather dull…….

    She’s wearing full fox hunting riding dress – the whip is a hunting whip, the hook handle is for holding gates or similar, while the long lash can be used to guide the hounds or used as a lead rope for a riderless horse. Nowadays the bowler hat would not usually be seen outside of a hunter show class at a horse show. Of course, the innuendo about riding and whips etc is the whole point ;)

    Thanks for the info on the whip Wandering Pony. I couldn’t place it.

    Wandering Pony: Same here, I thought it was a coach whip (by the length) but couldn’t figure out the handle. Good work!

    I find it interesting that the floor is blood-red in color.

    You may call me Mistress Armstrong.

    Floor, I guess you could call it that, I prefer to call my work surface

    “Really Darling…. How else do you get a floor to a hard shine?”

    “I demand that my floor shine like my boots!”
