Brooke Bond Brooke Bond Tea Card Issues British Costume black back re-issue 1973 British Costume black back re-issue 1973 50 - These illustrate male and female dress from 1050 to the swinging Sixties and include formal court wear, day wear and even a Scottish kilt and Welsh country dress. This is a fine historical set with plenty of information on the reverse. For instance we learn that dresses for ladies in the 1920s flattered the flat chested and men had a new soft felt hat. These colourful cards also demonstrate perfectly the excessive lengths to which being fashionable can take you – this is especially apparent in the 1880s when in addition to the incredibly tight corset an extreme bustle was attached on the back which we are told had to support the weight of the heavily-trimmed overdress. Such a dress must have severely restricted movement and it is no wonder that the Rational Dress Society was founded in that same period to promote more comfortable clothing. This black text back set is a re-issue of the original 1967 set and a re-issue album was originally available to house these cards. These provide a real guide to clothing over the centuries and the cards are size 68 x 36mm.
