Legend: ENGLISH TRADITIONAL COSTUMES tend to vary according to the trade and occupation of the wearer. Indeed, it was often possible to tell a man's or a woman's occupation at a glance by the style of their clothes. Fishermen, onion sellers, shoe-blacks and judges all had distinctive costumes, and were fiercely protective of their right to wear them. As a result, the English streets were a riot of individualism, with the harsh cries of the street sellers and a wealth of variety in costume. These illustrations are mainly taken from the end of the 18th century and the early 19th century. 1 An almanac seller. 2 A street hawker, who collects fat from kitchens makes candles. 3 An old woman, carrying a barrel of black pudding. 4 A quack, selling elixirs that are guaranteed to cure illness and revive the spirits. 5 An onion seller. 6 7 Draymen, who drive brewers' carts, called "drays". This job requires a good deal of brute strength, and draymen are doughty characters whose constitution is under constant assault from the hospitality offered by grateful customers. 8 A waterman at a coach stand. His job is to water and feed the horses during a short coach stop, and to open the coach doors for passengers. 2.9 John Clancey, an Irish sailor who was shipwrecked off the coast of America and lost his legs through frostbite. He lived off public charity, and became a well-known London character. 10 A cattle drover, who drives the cattle to market. 11 A fish seller. 12 A postman. 16 Henry Thrale, a shoe-black who worked in the Strand. 18 A chief fireman, wearing a uniform that denotes his member-ship of an organization set up in the days of Queen Anne, and with a metal badge of rank of his arm. 19 An agricultural labourer from the outskirts of London, wearing a smock of simple, unbleached linen, which has a slit in the side to facilitate movement. 2 A milkmaid, carrying her heavy load in tin pails supported by a wooden yolk. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Overall view of the print: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy !

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving

Full star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star small

This old engraving has substantiated and stimulated a recent interest of mine; this physical thing now hangs in front of my reading chair, and I have found the digital copy of the charming old book from which it was cut (VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OR SCENES IN MANY LANDS VOLUME
de Colange, Leo (Ed.)).
Published by E.W. Walker, Boston, MA (1887))
I recommend enjoying some of the 19th century paintings under "Trabzon in art" in commons.wikipedia., which is where I first discovered this one. In some of these it is the artists viewpoint of serious (not ) peacefulness that I especially enjoy, and now this is substantiated, in front of my reading chair.
