someone in any period uniform and modern glasses. Why bother with the rest
of the uniform?
Frankly, I think there are to many reenactors wearing period spectacles.
Spectacles in this period were utilized for reading and other sedimentary
work. The average person couldn't afford them.
Unless there are no sanitary facilities to clean my hands, I usually wear
contact lenses during the day. I encourage others to do the same.
