Academic Rachel Worth explores the ways in which the clothing of the rural working classes was represented visually (in paintings and photographs) and by literary sources (documentary, autobiography and fiction), as well as by the particular pattern of survival and collection by museums.
Her compelling study, with black & white and colour illustrations, considers the history of dress within the social and cultural context of its time and discusses how clothing enriches our understanding of the Victorian period.
