The Gentleman’s Page

The Gentleman’s Page is subtitled “A Practical Guide for the 19th Century American Man.” And it is, indeed. Browsing this site, you’ll learn how the men of that period dressed (frock suits, sack suits, and so on), how they acted (the correct bowing technique), and even the strict etiquette on how they should use their visiting cards when calling on acquaintances. Photographs and illustrations from the period are included. It’s quite fascinating.
