One response to “Alternative sources for 19th-century images”

    I can spend hours browsing the historical costume section of the Costumer’s Manifesto website. The owner of the site publishes her huge collection of fashion plates and other historical materials, plus she links to historical costume resources all over the web. NINES users would most likely be interested in . . .

    Regency and Empire period costumes:

    the Victorian era:
    http://www.costumes.org/HISTORY/100pages/victlinks.htm

    and the Edwardian era:
    http://www.costumes.org/HISTORY/100pages/1900links.htm

    . . . but links are provided for costume research on everything from “Pre-Historic, Babylonian and Biblical Costume” (e.g. “the clothing worn by the Iceman”) to various fashion trends and subcultures of the 2000s (e.g. a link to “buy Japanese high school uniforms”).
