Crocodile Tears and the River Nile

For reasons both practical and nostalgic, I bought this gift set of vintage Nile Hankies. For running noses, yes - oi there it goes - come back Nose* - no  I mean of course the nose that leaks a bit when the legs are running, or one might say, joins in that game. Unlike its modern counterpart, the tissue, that has launched a million fissures, with it's half-life of ten seconds running backwards, the lady's hankie, embroidered, is in for the long run.
* At this point I would recommend reading Gogol's The Nose
