Whoa Nellie, Airbrushing in 1895


 Nellie Stewart as Mam'zelle Nitouche, 1895 / The Falk Studios, Sydney:

"Australia's Sweetheart" in about as racy as it got in respectable theatre in 1895. She wears a heavy body stocking, the wrinkles of which can be seen but her lovely 37 year old face is as heavily air brushed as today's celebrities and she looks very young
Didja catch that part about airbrushing her 37 year old face?
