Based on emails from readers, and comments on the blog, I am forced to face facts and admit that the first two days of Ladies' Week have failed to have their intended effect. Apparently the photographs are not causing hearts to flutter. I am getting lots of comments and emails that I did a much better job of picking out pictures of women than I am of picking out pictures of men. Never fear, we still have several days left for me to try and redeem myself. So today I have a picture of a violinist for you, as apparently bare-knuckle boxers were not doing the trick. This picture was taken in 1898. His name was Eugene Ysaye, and he was also a conductor and composer. Any Better?
