] ] I was wondering in P&P2 when it's summer, Lydia is actually very tanned. Wasn't it considered unbecoming etc. in those days?
P&P2 also had a shocking lack of parasols. The only one I remember was held over the head of Anne deBurgh by Mrs. Jenkinson. I thought that ladies used parasols frequently, to keep the sun from making them a little tanned when traveling in the summer.
