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. TOP ROW: Fig. 2 (2nd from left) A milkmaid, carrying her heavy load in tin pails supported by a wooden yolk. 3 A fireman, differently dressed from the chief fireman above. This man is wearing a helmet made from thick, black leather and decorated with metal bands. He is dressed in blue, and carries an axe. 4 A match seller. 5 A newspaper seller. When there is important news, these men announce the fact by blowing loudly on a metal horn; a taste of the news is written on a placard attached on the hat. 6 A watchman, who would walk his beat every half-hour, calling out the time. BOTTOM ROW: Fig. 1 A barrow woman, probably selling fruit. 2 A young woman selling shrimps, and carrying the net in which they are caught. 3 A fish seller at Billingsgate Market, at which, according to the ancient rules, all fish coming into the City of London has to be sold. Unfortunately, women such as this are unlikely to be able to afford the best fish, and the cries of best fish here" are usually lies. 4 A baker. Bakers are the only tradesmen whose profits were limited by law. 5 Washerwomen. These women line the river bank and wash their laundry by beating it when wet with a wooden spatula, then soaping, rinsing and beating again. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------- 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.
