Wednesday Regency: Banking
There's a scene in Improper Match where Selina needs to take money from the bank. However, women weren't allowed to do so. Even though two separate banks were owned and very successfully run by women, the laws of the time forbade them from actually retrieving their own money (theirs or their husband's) themselves.
I know, I know. But this was 200+ years ago. And for those who love the Regency Era, we love how our women work around these rules!
I learned much of this from Michelle Styles's guest post, but then did my own research. It's so interesting, how these brilliant women worked around the laws of the time.
