Skirt Lifters show the ingenuity of Victorian, Edwardian (and some earlier) inventors to raise ladies’ long skirts above the filth and muck of the roads and walkways. They come in a wide variety of very delightful designs, patents and mechanisms. They are small items that can be displayed very effectively or stored in small cabinets. Up until now, there has been little information on the subject. The aim of this book is to give prospective collectors and those interested In the history of such items an insight into the fascinating world of skirt lifters.
