Beauty Secrets Revealed
Having won a $10,000 beauty contest sponsored by the Chicago Daily Tribune,
Della Carson divulges her beauty secrets in this pamphlet, presenting
herself as an image of the buxom ideal that prevailed at the turn of the
20th century. She advertises her beauty treatments with glowing
testimonials from customers, her own story of struggle, and the warning
that "Declining beauty causes divorce."
