She was having tea for two.

Proper etiquette dictates you only balance one teacup on your bosom at a time.
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 😉
CDV of Mary Powers, the Barnum fat lady. Back of card reads Miss Mary J. Powers, The Kentucky Giantess: 26 years old and weighs 782 pounds: 5 feet 2 inches high: 86 inches around the waist and 33 inches around the arm – Barnum’s fat lady at the time of the fire, March 3rd 1868: Was born at Franklin County, Kentucky, and weighs 175 pounds more than any other lady in America. Marked Adams & Mendenhall, Indianapolis, Indiana.
This lady must have been awesome back in the day!!! Love it!
This is actually very historical. This lady was the inspiration for the first American flattop carrier.
I just like her smirk.
I’ve often said it – never thought I’d actually see it
I don’t think this is what they meant when they said just put the tea on top of the chest.
Really “Top Shelf”
I believe that this is Mary Powers, a side show performer billed as “The Kentucky Giantess”.
Will you have milk with your tea? NO THANKS!
Can we just have our tea, Mrs. Lincoln?
a great-aunt in my husband’s family used to spill cake crumbs ‘on the verandah’ – now I get the picture.
I’ve heard of a C cup, & a D cup….but a “T cup”??!
You win the internet!
Like a teatray in the sky!
Her cups runneth over!
Is this a real period photo?
I doubt it. The wrist watch was not popular really until the 1920s. This looks like a carnival “old timey” shot to me.
yes — which makes it even better LOL!
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.
This is an authentic photo. Her name is Mary Powers. She was a “side show” attraction.
I imagine this person was probably a circus sideshow performer.Holding the teacups on her bosoms was probably part of her act.
I think she’s a PT Barnum star called Mary Powers who was billed as “The Kentucky Giantess”.
Wow! I want to see the corset holding that up.
I believe this was where the phrase, “What a rack!” originated.
LOL! You stole the words right out of my mouth.
