Walking stick history and pics

It's been a while since I made any progress with my 18th century walking stick, but doing some research I found a link to Laurence Jantzen's website which is well worth a look.
Amongst the mass of information on her site she covers the history of walking sticks and provides some useful background for their use in the late 17th and 18th centuries. 
There are also some lovely 18th century pictures featuring women posing with their cannes d’agrément as they were called.
