Origin of Crust Less Tea Sandwiches

eenie1 | Sep 13, 2016 05:34 PM

Would anyone know why the English began cutting the crusts off their tea sandwiches? Was it because the crust was moldy and/or stale? Was it strictly appearance? I'm having no luck finding this info for an essay I'm working on for my class at Johnson & Wales! Thank you!
