Synopsis

This book explains the history of British occupational dress from around 1750 to 1950, a period that saw the decline of many traditional forms of employment, the emergence of new types of job and the alteration of various existing roles to meet the changing demands of the workplace. Occupational gear vividly reflects the daily working lives of people during this period. Drawing on wide range of historical resources, this guide demonstrates the adaptation of regular clothes for manual tasks, the development of civilian uniforms and the evolution of protective garments, and will be of particular interest to family historians researching ancestors' occupations, as well as costume enthusiasts and designers.
