On Tuesday, 22nd June 1915, newspapers in The Hague published a humorous news item about a lady whose elegant high-heeled shoe got stuck between the rails of the steam-tram from The Hague to Scheveningen. Despite all her efforts, she could not pull the heel out of the rails. The tram had to stop and a crowd gathered. When a policeman arrived, he ordered the lady to remove her shoe. She refused. Resolutely, the policeman knelt down and unbuttoned the shoe. The lady withdrew her foot and revealed... a stocking full of holes.
