Is it possible for a young woman to be so beautiful that she ties up traffic?

Evidently.

A 19th-century London confectioner known as Mr. Very put his daughter to work in his shop.

So stunning was she that people stood around outside the shops windows to watch her.

Not just a few people.

Crowds.

Historical footnotes say the police eventually got Mr. Very to send the young lady out of the city.

She was stalling both horse and foot traffic, they said, just because she was so strikingly beautiful.
