Many of my statements are made from personal observation, whether from fashion plates or the lovely and historically accurate movies which have been recently made (as opposed to the lovely and historically inaccurate movies which have been made!). Where possible, I have included credit to the sources I have found helpful. The pictures I have used are from contemporary fashion plates and portraits, as well as my own photographs.
