June fashions from the Ladies monthly Museum. You may notice a similarity to the the 1821 plate I posted in April, yet there’s quite a difference in fashion details. Interesting, too, that the General Monthly Statement of Fashion includes a report on weather & its influence on fashion. (Please click on pictures to enlarge for readability.)
There’s a big difference in how we use history. But we’re equally nuts about it. To us, the everyday details of life in the past are things to talk about, ponder, make fun of -- much in the way normal people talk about their favorite reality show.
We talk about who’s wearing what and who’s sleeping with whom. We try to sort out rumor or myth from fact. We thought there must be at least three other people out there who think history’s fascinating and fun, too. This blog is for them.
