About this work
Madame Delait was proprietor, after the death of her husband in 1928, of the "Café de la femme au barbe" at Thaon-les-Vosges. She let her beard grow as the result of a bet. She became a celebrity and travelled to exhibit herself in England and Ireland. Many photographs and picture postcards of her were published
