Why were they putting little bitty coffee filters on their snooty noses?

Flu epidemic in the 1920s. Wouldn't do to have the well dressed catch a common disease like that!

I think that flu epidemic did kill quite a few folks, but I don't know if wearing a duck bill was worth it or not. I guess they look pretty snazzy still.

Actually, it looks more like a coffee filter/dog snout. I wonder if they could open their mouths. It looks too small to be doing that.

I was wondering about the mouth thing, too. Also, you know when they took them off they had weird lines around their noses and across their chins.
