    Proper etiquette dictates you only balance one teacup on your bosom at a time.

  2. SImon says:

    Ummmm……I think I’ll take my tea black this time, thanks all the same.

    I think she can feed a soccer team and their family with her giant creepy boobs

    “2 cappucinos for table 6 !”

    I wish I knew who this was, she looks a lot like my mom, and I guess me by extension.

    Plenty of “arm-shelf” pictures here on AFP but I’ve never seen a “boob-shelf” pose before!

    Marry a buxom and save the cost of a dining table.

    I’ve heard of Double Ds, but double Teas? (I crack me up)

    Unleash those puppies and watch what happens to those cups!

    They just don’t make broads like this anymore 😉

    This lady must have been awesome back in the day!!! Love it!

  13. Bill says:

    This is actually very historical. This lady was the inspiration for the first American flattop carrier.

  14. Sarah M. says:

    I just like her smirk.

  15. Tom says:

    I’ve often said it – never thought I’d actually see it

  16. Lynn says:

    I don’t think this is what they meant when they said just put the tea on top of the chest.

  17. Leonard Strom says:

    Really “Top Shelf”

  18. Lola Granola says:

    I believe that this is Mary Powers, a side show performer billed as “The Kentucky Giantess”.

  19. Denis says:

    Will you have milk with your tea? NO THANKS!

  20. Grampa says:

    Can we just have our tea, Mrs. Lincoln?

  21. cooldingo says:

    a great-aunt in my husband’s family used to spill cake crumbs ‘on the verandah’ – now I get the picture.

  22. Elizabeth says:

    I’ve heard of a C cup, & a D cup….but a “T cup”??!

  23. AndrewT says:

    Like a teatray in the sky!

  24. Scout C says:

    Her cups runneth over!

  25. Deserae says:

    Is this a real period photo?

    • Norkio says:

      I doubt it. The wrist watch was not popular really until the 1920s. This looks like a carnival “old timey” shot to me.

    • mrs5180 says:

      yes — which makes it even better LOL!

      • Dee Tree says:

        That looks more like a bracelet to me,not a watch, and old timey carnival shots are not so grainy looking. Carnival shots are sepia toned, but sharp. Also, the hairdo is a bit elaborate for a county fair type of shot. It’s authentic if you ask me.

  26. Redcordelia says:

    I imagine this person was probably a circus sideshow performer.Holding the teacups on her bosoms was probably part of her act.

    • lola formerly of vegas says:

      I think she’s a PT Barnum star called Mary Powers who was billed as “The Kentucky Giantess”.

  27. Lisa says:

    Wow! I want to see the corset holding that up.

  28. Anne says:

    I believe this was where the phrase, “What a rack!” originated.
