Reading the News, 1856-1886 (Oil on Board) Giclee Print

Reading the News by Thomas Webster 1856-1886

Normally, the 19th century news is one of my favorite monthly posts. Sadly, September seems a dry month for 19th century inspired news. I have read numerous articles to prepare for this post. Many of the news bits touch on things we have seen before such as Founders Day and local re-enactment; not that there is anything wrong with those! Any excuse to dress up is fine by me. After much consideration, I elected to bring to you the eight selections below. Luckily, these picks are rather interesting; a dormitory straight out of  a horror film to Regency stripping . . . Do I have your attention now?
