THE EFFORT REQUIRED TO LEARN A NEW WALK. Here is the article from 1904 that Molly sent me. The effort it describes as being necessary to learn the new walk explains why it could well take three months to learn it (the article is from the September 25, 1904 edition of the Pittsburgh Press). The article was headed “YOU MUST LEARN THE WALK OF 1905” The new walk was described as having a military carriage, and it was suggested that a West Point cadet would be a good teacher. Running on all fours was one of the exercises recommended to improve gracefulness. An example was given of a woman who practiced doing this for six months and became graceful.
