A Brief Double Feature: Speaking of Unmentionables & Cup Check Please

October 8 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

$3.00

Well known Chicago performer Ellie Carlson of Ellie Presents will return to Elgin on October 8th with her popular talk, Speaking of Unmentionables: The Rise & Fall of Ladies’ Underwear.  As a special added double feature, Cup Check Please: A Scholarly Talk on a Jocular Subject will also be presented. These are two of Ellie’s most requested programs, together at last!

Unmentionables charts the course of a lady’s silhouette throughout time and how it was not always entirely her own, she had help. Cup Check is an examination of masculine protective equipment beginning with the fig leaf and focusing on protection for the downtown business district whilst engaged in sporting activities.
