William Waine: Tailor to the Common Man
What can a tailor's account book tell us about his clients and the social world in which they lived? Historian and tailor Henry M. Cooke will share his primary research on 18th-century tailor William Waine. With a shop in Boston's South End, Waine tailored to working-class Bostonians - including longshoremen, and perhaps some participants in the Boston Tea Party! This illustrated talk will open your eyes to the tailor's craft as a window into economy, social stratification, and everyday life in 1770s Boston.
Join us at 12 noon for tea and cookies, PROGRAM BEGINS AT 12:15pm. Co-Sponsored by Artists Crossing Gallery.
