Historical links of many kinds

Deb's Historical Research Page. This a ton of links found by a writer of romance fiction for her own reference. Most deal with recent British history and manners. Links vary in quality. Many are fascinating. Check out Boys' Dresses, Imperial Royal Playing Cards, or the discussion of an 18th Century English breakfast.

Many are fascinating.

This is one of 'em: Leading Strings. How leashes for small children used to be sewn into their clothes.

Won't tell you what link above I immediately clicked on, ultimately to arrive there...
