I’ve written another post on the Richmond Bread Riot for the Emerging Civil War, and it’s up today! It’s a two-part post, so make sure to check back on their site tomorrow at 1 to see the second half.
If you’re on Facebook, like Blue Ridge Vintage! Not only are all the posts uploaded there, but I also link to other fun and informative articles floating around on the internet.
Enough shameless plugging, and onto something fun:
These boys are carving jack-o-lanterns, c. 1917. I love how cute the pumpkins are, as well as how the boys are totally posing for the picture. Look at their clothing- it’s on the chillier side, as they’re all wearing hose under their lightweight knickers. Notice in the background that there’s no step from the doorway to the front porch!
