      Hi Debs

      Maybe. I'm not much of a one for fashion. I do remember once knowing one of the words from 'Call My Bluff.' The word was 'gibus' which was a collapsible hat for taking to the opera. I knew that because I'd read "Kipps" by H.G. Wells. But in general most stuff about clothes goes in one ear and out the other.

        practise

        Hello Howard. Of course, SOME prefer practise to theory.

        Cheers.

              My paternal grandmother Birtles Pointon before her marriage to Edward George. She was born in 1876 on the Isle of Man, so this photograph was probably taken in the mid-1890's.



              One other thing. Poster Gilex at My Liverpool found this nice listing from the Sears Roebuck catalogue showing men's headgear of the period. It's from their 1902 catalogue but I should think most of these hats were probably worn in the late 19th century.

                    Thank you, How.

                    The picture is of my ggg uncle, George Robert Barnett on his wedding day in 1860. He was born in North Place, Little North Street, Whitechapel. His father was a horse slaughterer working at Monk's slaughter yard in Little North Street.

                    By 1888 Little North Street had been renamed Winthrop Street and the yard was owned by Harrison Barber.

                      Thanks Gary. I always think those ribbon type bow ties make the photos look American.
                      Any relation to Joseph?

                        He had an older brother named Joseph and an Irish mother, but no connection to MJK's Joseph as far as I know. The Barnett ancestry is English (Whitechapel, Stepney, City) back to the mid-18th century as far as I can tell.

                            I have just discovered this man's marriage cert. It amused me for two reasons: the use of the word 'knacker', which I hadn't seen on an official document before, and the name of the second witness.

                                Men of the 72nd Regiment of Foot (Highlanders) wearing Crimean War campaign medals.

                                What was it Wellington said of his men at Waterloo?

                                "I don't know what effect these men will have upon the enemy, but, by God, they frighten me."
