Colonial Williamsburg Trades People



you're dry and the same can be said of the white oak material depending on how Dan whether is whether it's rainy or humid might only take a few hours before you feel comfortable weaving with it or might take a few days now he is where are you – in life oh yeah home pants on the heel of shoes listen everything's turning here's the paper come from anywhere to Mumbai from what you import it from English to London and drunk Mabon game users stationer is the middleman between the tailor make around the customer so we're actually employing it from stationers but hey we're going to date in specific sizes and shoes well how how would that work actually you can come in and you tell me what you want straight so you're holding it at an angle against forms called stakes hammering down pivots down towards the form and you're hammering down right on it there we go there we go there comes you wherever you wish to go in now do they have do they have to wash their ways

    There was no pressure tobe politically correct in the 18th century. A tradesman was a tradesman, a journeyman a journeyman, etc. regardless of the sex of the person the term was applied to. What's more, it would be very rare to see a woman engaged in a trade such as printer, cooper, or many of those shown in the video.

    As for craftsman vs tradesman, this video features tradesmen, not craftsmen. We inappropriately place our modern definitions upon historical contexts.

    @roxtaj – no such thing as "journeywomen". It's a compound word, "journeyman".

    And, as a 5th generation master mason, I'm quite familiar with the traditional titles for craftsmen.

    I got the term trades people from the Colonial Williamsburg web site. They refer to them as both trades people and tradesmen. I do agree that the people are craftsmen.

    The term is "tradesmen", not "tradespeople".

    btw, half the people you're showing are *craftsmen*, not tradesmen.
