This almost fits into the theme of my latest exhibition (currently being installed) about the home-front. Of course, this little home would be a post-war house perfect for returning vets.

There’s a not dissimilar dress in the museum collection where I work. Ours is probably dates from 1750-1780, but with all the alterations it’s undergone, it is hard to say exactly.
