The Nuremberg housebooks

Post by wulfenganck »

Hi,
the following link has some very helpful illustrations for average handcrafters clothing and tools, covering nearly 2 centuries. Of course a german source, therefore maybe variations in style for england, but nevertheless nice "average-joe"-link
I don't know where to put that link, since a lot of the pictures are 15th ct, this may be the right place.
Here it is: http://www.nuernberger-hausbuecher.de/

Regards
Wolfgang

It is indeed a marvelous resource. I would suggest accessing it through this page which gives English job tittles but you can also change the search to products, tools, materials.

Robin, be careful with some of the Job Titles, there's a Dialect Border
that can confuse non locals. It's the reason for so many different
Lace Makers, and they make shoe laces not lace. I only know this because Her Ladyship is from Nürnberg. If you need any help with checks PM us.
