What qualities did the perfect girl of 1912 possess, you ask? Let us regale you: Aside from standing at 5'7" and weighing a healthy 171 pounds, Miss Elsie rarely ate breakfast, never drank coffee or tea (gasp!), and preferred beefsteak dinners to candy. She also never got sick and didn't feel fear — apparently, in the 1900s, the perfect woman was also a superhero.
While we'll never meet the outdoor-sport-ing, horticulture-ing, beef-eating Scheel, we can imagine that she pulled in many a handsome man — you couldn't expect any less from a woman who didn't "have a single defect." Megan Fox, meet your match. (Gothamist)
