👛The week of purses 👛
It is not exactly the purse but rather kind of pocketbook made for sewing. I made it all by hand using my robe a l'Anglaise leftovers (as they originally did in 18th / 19th century). It is really helpful, every reenactment I am carrying and using this stuff for sewing or repairing my dresses. You can see there bird shaped scissors - they are not 100% accurate for the period but almost everyone has them 😂 And three handmade manufactured, brass pins with real stones ✂✂✂
У реконструкторов свои нужды в плане сумочек !
Из остатков ткани от платья Марта сшила этот конверт для швейных принадлежностей который берет с собой, когда участвует в реконструкциях)
В нём все необходимое, чтобы 'починить' платье , если потребуется)
🇺🇸 NEW YORK HARBOR, U.S.A. - The Cruiser "Queen Elizabeth" bringing American troops into NY Harbor at the end of WWII, 1945. The cruisers Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mary were used as troop transports during the Second World War. Their high speeds allowed them to outrun hazards, principally German U-boats, usually allowing them to travel without a convoy.
This past weekend in Middletown, Virginia the 153 anniversary of the Battle of Cedar Creek was targeted by some person or persons who had so much hate in their heart, that they had no regard to human life. This was my first reenactment with a living history group that serves soldiers on both sides and it was also my first experience with a threat. Camps had to be evacuated and the ball that was going to be held on Saturday was canceled. Even though spectators were not allowed onto the battlefield, the reenactors continued on with the reenactment. I was fortunate enough to see the battle from the fence that enclosed the grounds and many people watched as well. I later talked to a union soldier (who was telling me about guns) and I asked him what is was like continuing on in their own form of protest against the threat. He told me that is was very emotional and that both sides congratulated each other after the battle. It was truly a amazing sight. I am very proud to be getting into this reenacting world. The people I meet are so incredible, resilient, and kind. Thank God nothing serious happened. #reenacting#civilwar#photography#civilwarreenactment#civilwarbattle#battle#union#confederate#cedarcreek#guns#canon
🇬🇧 SHEFFIELD, ENGLAND - The Hillsborough disaster was a human crush at Hillsborough football stadium in Sheffield, England on 15 April 1989, during the 1988–89 FA Cup semi-final game between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest. The resulting 96 fatalities and 766 injuries makes this the worst disaster in British sporting history. When the gates were opened, thousands of fans entered a narrow tunnel leading to the rear of the terrace into two overcrowded central pens (pens 3 and 4), creating pressure at the front. Hundreds of people were pressed against one another and the fencing by the weight of the crowd behind them. In the days and weeks following the disaster, police fed false stories to the press suggesting that hooliganism and drinking by Liverpool supporters were the root causes of the disaster. Blaming of Liverpool fans persisted even after the Taylor Report of 1990, which found that the main cause of the disaster was a failure of control by South Yorkshire Police (SYP).
