Even XVIIIth century ladies need lunch. This lady was involved with the jewellry stand we saw the other day - remember the dead fox?

Looks like airline food to me, all seperated in her little tray.

To keep to the times, she should be eating wild boar, venison and things like that.

There is something incongrous about this photo. I think it's the medieval lady eating from a styrofoam box with a plastic fork!

Halcyon, yes it was just that that made me take the photograph. I thought it a hoot.

I'm not sure if she's looking forward to that bite of food or if she's afraid of it! ;-)

Great shot!

But XVIIIth Century ladies didn't get their water from a clear plastic bottle. They probably got it from a cistern. And no plastic forks and foam food trays. This is one of the reasons these historical fairs are so amusing - the re-enactment only goes so far.
