Kitchen and Cream

Two more images from The Manner of Crying Things in London 1640 that show to me that some women at least of a lower status weren’t wearing bodies to give them the fashionable straight lined body shape. I guess it was cheaper and probably more comfortable if you were carrying things on your head! Notice also that these street vendors have decorated their linen with lace. Some lace was very cheap in the 1640s.
