Fans from the later half of the 18th century depict #peaceful pastoral or nature scenes, making them a perfect choice for today’s #GeorgianJanuary theme. Landscapes were common, as well as love or courtship scenes. Fans had many purposes—as fashion accessories, they complemented a lady’s outfit, while other fans decorated with historical or political matter were used as propaganda. Fans were also used as a “social instrument”. In other words, there was a fan “language” used to signal words or emotions.

Yesterday’s #georgianjanuary was #white, and I saved this photo then never posted! So close! This sweet cap from “Plucking the Turkey” has always been a favorite (plus that bedgown!) The everyday whites are special just as much as fancy muslins and silks. #historicalclothing #historicalfashion #18thcentury #georgianfashion #thclothiers #laborers #scullerymaid #kitchenmaid #historicalfoodways

If you ever find yourself in Amsterdam with an hour to spare, do visit Museum van Loon at the Keizergracht! It is a wonderfully eclectic period house where the family Van Loon resided until the 1960s before it was opened to the public. This 19th-century room divider (yes love those!) is quite a show stopper in the reception room where former Dutch Queen Wilhelmina regularly held audiences 👑

For today's theme of #peaceful for #GeorgianJanuary - Could there be a more peaceful scene than this family? Even though each one is pursuing their own leisure activity - that leisure being as much a symbol of their privileged wealth as the plump cattle, swans, endless lands, and little temple-folly - there's a serenity and stillness to the entire idyllic scene. "The Brockman family at Beachborough" by Edward Haytley, 1744-46, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne. #edwardhaytley #britishart #britishartist #1740s #gorgeousgeorgians #18thcentury #landscape #landedgentry #gentry #privilege #peace #serenity #country #art #arthistory #historyofart #heartart #artlovers @dames_a_la_mode

People lining up to get water from the old tea water pump, c. 1790. Fed by a spring that also fed the nearby #CollectPond, the pump stood near Mulberry Street and Chatham Street (now #ParkRow). It was built in 1741 on a parcel of land owned by the Hardenbrook family, replacing an old well on the site (at the time, the city had around 250 wells). Water from this pump was considered to be the best in the city, and made for particularly tasty tea. So many people used the pump that a pleasure garden and tavern were established right next to it, with the tavern selling drinks made with the pump's water. Enterprising folks flocked to the pump, filling up large horse-drawn barrels with water and delivering it across the city. At one point, more than 3,000 households were using water taken from the tea water pump. By 1785, 24 of these tea water men were selling as many as 20,000 gallons a day at a rate of 96 cents per bucket. However, the pump’s water was becoming increasingly polluted as the city expanded. More households and businesses were dumping waste and chemicals into the Collect Pond, turning it into what one local newspaper called a “common sewer” that was choked with rubbish, excrement and the rotting carcasses of dogs, cats, and rats. In 1797, the City Council declared the pump to be a public nuisance (largely due to the congestion caused by the lumbering carts of the tea water men), and ordered it boarded up. The loss of this and other water pumps around the city, combined with the contaminated wells, compounded the city’s pressing problems with providing fresh, clean water to residents. This, paired with a series of disastrous fires over the years, would eventually prompt the Common Council to find a solution to the problem. The #CrotonAqueduct would open to great fanfare in 1842 #NYC #Chinatown #18thCentury #water #infrastructure #history #NYChistory #DiscoveringNYC
