I have to admit my own daughter attended a boarding school for women, and she loved it. It was her choice, much to our surprise, but it was the right decision.
That’s why it was fun to come across a 1909 magazine with lots of advertising for boarding schools. I should note the school my daughter graduated from was established as a school for young women to get the same opportunities as young men. Many of the women’s schools in 1909 were more about etiquette than math and science
It is interesting to note many of these schools advertised are still teaching students.
There are also ads for products we still use today! We’ll always have Coca Cola and children’s cereal!
