I will be thinking of poor Lieutenant-Colonel Charles Stoddard and Captain Arthur Conolly when I visit the Ark in Bukhara 😅 although apparently the infamous vermin-infested dungeon, where they were kept (in Stoddard’s case, for 3.5 years in total) before being beheaded, was not covered by the Soviets’ restorations. Not long to wait now - this time next week, I’ll be on my way to Turkmenistan!! #centralasia #centralasiatravel #kathleenhopkirk #bukhara #bokhara #silkroad #silkroadtravel #stoddard #arthurconolly #bukharaark #vambery #armeniusvambery #travelogue #britsabroad #19thcenturytravel #teadrinking #teaetiquette #bookstagram

Quilting is a surface design technique that involves stitching patterns through multiple layers of fabric to hold them together. This was acquired by Charles "Charley" Jervis Langdon while he was traveling abroad with Mark Twain in 1867. Charley is a featured character in Twain's "Innocents Abroad." #marktwain #samuelclemens #charleylangdon #innocentsabroad #quilt #19thcenturytravel #surfacedesign #jacket #fashion #fashion history #quilting #cornell #cornellcostumecollection #design #white #pattern #humanecology #cornelluniversity #iamhumec

"London den 2 Febr. 1895
Älskade Helene,
Märkwärdigt nog war öfwerresan rätt wacker och straxt då jag ankom hit telegraferade jag dig om min ankomst - innan jag gick på mitt rum."
