More capote pics

These are from the 1730s I think.

I have seen these images before, and have them saved on file. The main thing that struck me of course was the length compared to recreated ones these days.
Same thing with the knapsack bags that were supposed to double as sleeping bags. Original images show them barely reaching the knees!
Good post.
