Victorian Parasol Suckers: It was a THING

 I was reading this Victorian etiquette book . . . 

and I came across this passage:

"Youngsters these days!  Sucking on their parasols! What is the world coming to? Pray tell, what is next? Ladies wearing men's trousers and voting? Absolutely ridiculous. It is too much to be borne."

I'll leave you with some Public Domain images from Harper's Bazaar of ladies not sucking on their parasols:

In case you wanted to know what were the en vague (make that VOGUE) parasols:
 Circa 1870.
