- Hi all
I just took over as the Costume Manager at the Pioneer
Village in my area and aside form being aghast at the
quality of the collection, I was mortified to discover
the very limited research done on the subject.
I figured I would ask you, fellow listites, for ideas
on research materials. I guess I should tell you a
bit about the village, it is covering a period of
settlement in the area from 1800-1920 ( I
know...immmense "Pioneer" period). The area is Upper
Canada (Ontario to non Canadians). The Primary period
we are dressing for is mostly 1850's, what we need is
materials and ideas for both farm and more
professional attire. I have combed through my
personal and our local library for necessary materials
and have come up a little short in both areas (my main
speciality is 18th and early 19th C), I have some but
would like more, as a hypothesis is only as good as
the research that goes into it.
Any suggestions for either books OR Clothing would be
greatly appreciated, you can either contact me off or
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
