    Seek Late Victorian USA Photographers & Reenactors info

    Not Civil War era, 1890's

    I am a docent at John A Logan College Historical Village ---John A. Logan

    Looking for info and images of period photographers and how they dressed in the field, I need a costume...

    Our women volunteers wear bonnets, long dresses and boots, men mostly dress as farmers, this area had/has coal mining and farming

    Thanks Mark and Brian

    Notman for NOT ART, how fitting!

    Found this, but it's way too expensive for what it is, https://www.historicalemporium.com/s...Middle%20Class

    I may buy a duster and use my cart without the mule it rains a lot here, so https://www.outbacktrading.com/colle...n-duster-coats

    I'll discuss with the others, but for the Christmas Stroll I will wear what I have, as...

    I say, beware of all enterprises that require new clothes, and not rather a new wearer of clothes.

    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    I see I already have the clothing, haircut, mustache is in progress, do need a bigger vest and puffy white shirt. Got hats!

    I do like that tripod on wheels, I can convert things I have, but not those wheels, nor will I not ride a Penny Farthing. My bike trailer can be camouflaged and towed by my ebike.

    Thanks!
