The Juvenile Almanack

On this frosty day in mid-January, I thought this might be a good moment to look forward through the year with this almanac from the eighteen-twenties, published by Hodgson & Co, 10 Newgate St. I am grateful to Sian Rees for drawing my attention to these wonderful images.

    So dreamy. I particularly like December in which visitors for the holidays packed up their clothes for a trip home in a stagecoach.

    Carrying home gifts and clothing after delivering gifts to my hosts, riding in the stagecoach along country roads and into a city. Dressed in a long dress, a clear English complexion, blue hair tucked into my bonnet. Probably not very comfortable in reality but a nice dream.
