THE EVOLUTION OF BIRTH CONTROL - The Scottish-born Dr. Marie Stopes (1880-1958) was a leading advocate of birth control in the early 20th century. In 1918 Stopes wrote a guide to contraception called Wise Parenthood. In the face of opposition from the church she founded the Society for Constructive Birth Control and opened the 1st of her birth-control clinics in Holloway in N.London in 1921. The image shows Stopes working in the laboratory, where she helped to modify the contraceptive cap.

This Scottish tradition is for a young person to hand a horseshoe to the bride as she walks out of the church with her husband. The horseshoe signifies good luck in the marriage. This one was made in Scotland using silk flowers and a chromed plastic horse shoe so that after the ceremony it can hang it over the inside of your front door.
