Today's cuff note: street trio
4

FYI:

At the beginning of the XIX century, European gentlemen, both rich and poor, had the custom to make written notes on their cuffs. Poor guys used disposable paper collars and cuffs, rich ones ruined the cuffs of their fancy shirts. Hence the common Russian expression –"записки на манжетах" (notes on the cuffs).  A great Russian writer M. Bulgakov even wrote a book with this title.

I dare to coll my snapshots AKCN.
