SideTrack- The Ladies of the Oratorical & Recreational Society

The shot of me at left was taken in Sacramento, California back in 1999 .The event was RAILFAIR
The locomotive I am standing in front of is Eureka & Palisades # 4 this is a 3' gauge 4-4-0
wood burning locomotive,similar to the locomotives on the Carson & Colorado Railroad. The 2 Beautiful ladies I'm with are part of a group of reenactors that formed The Oratorical & Recreational Society. I remeber the lady on my right was Miss Brown, & I have forgotten the name of the Red head on my left. Now you have to remember
that back in 1881 there was no electricity,So candles & oil lamps or hand lanterns provided light.There was no radio, telivision.
Entertainment consisted of a Piano, or a Fiddle,
or a Banjo. Ladies like these told jokes,recited poetry sang songs & danced They might show a little cleavage,a little leg, or at most Turn & flip up the back of thier dresses to reveal thier pantaloons or " Unmentionables".
While the Men Smoked Cigars or pipes or rolled thier own cigerrets,some chewed tobacco & several "Spitoons" were strategicly placed , Alcoholic beverages were also served,so now immagine a large smoke filled room,dimly lit, with a large group of Men getting Drunk & who are Horney as hell & you have a group of women teaseing these poor men out of thier minds.

Hi Flyaway, SJ, Magnet- No I'm afraid not much has changed some would say it has only gotten worse.Just think- if we did what we do today in that time we all would have been arrested as Perverts,Degenerates & be The outcasts of society.In a future post I will go into some of
the differences & changes in the last 100 + years. Thank You all for stopping by.
