Fragment # 2.

349_1The Barber Institute is proving to be a veritable mine of possibly useless, but certainly fascinating, information.  So, fresh from their Painted Lady tour I come armed with the knowledge that the masks constructed for the Venetian carnival were made deliberately with very tight bridges across the nose.  Thus, not only was your face completely disguised but also your voice because all you could do was talk as if you had a very nasty head cold.

Ouch!
