Threads of Feeling


John Styles

What has become recognized as Britain's largest collection of everyday textiles from the mid 18th century, Threads of Feeling illustrates and describes an overview of the textiles. From 1742 to 1760 over 4000 babies were left by their mothers at the Foundling Hospital. Samples were taken of the mother's or baby's garments for identification records. This book sheds a revealing light on the type of clothing worn by ordinary people of the mid 18th century. Threads of Feeling is the museum exhibit catalogue by the curator John Styles who is also the author of The Dress of the People.
