A Party Angling and the Angler’s Repast, engravings after George Morland, 1789 via Donald Heald.
Y’all, those are some pretty amazing hats all around. If I didn’t have white guilt because of the presence of that poor slave, I would desperately want to recreate this whole scene.
More about Angling from Donald Heald:
“A pair of the most famous fishing prints after George Morland, the master of English genre painting.
During the eighteenth century punt fishing became a very fashionable sport, gentlemen and ladies gathered in droves to enjoy this popular outdoor pursuit. Morland was so struck with the charm of this pastime that he quickly rendered it on to canvas, thus creating two of his most cherished paintings. The two fashionable ladies pictured in the paintings are in fact Morland and Ward’s wives, while the gentlemen are John Raphael Smith and the engraver himself.”
What a charming little hat! That veil is gorgeous!

What splendid looking fellows!
Epic hats! This is what baseball is missing today!
Archery (Plate 2), Robert Sayer & Co., 1792. Via Donald Heald.
And archery wasn’t just for the men! Women also participated, and frequently had fabulous archery costumes and uniforms that were typically dark green. As you can see from this image, their dress typically took on masculine features similar to riding habits of the period, including hats.

A beautiful image of a popular sport and hobby for the wealthy! Archery as a leisure activity became very fashionable in England in the late-18th century, and continued to be popular into the 19th Century.
