The Dapper Gentleman Exhibit
1:00 pm & 3:00 pm
Tinker Swiss Cottage Museum, 411 Kent Street, Rockford, IL 61102
The Dapper Gentleman exhibit, September 28- December 15, visually explains what it was like to grow up as a male during the Victorian Era while focusing on the artifact remains of the Tinker family. The exhibit begins by exploring childhood and what was typical in regards to toys, dress, and parents attitudes towards children. The artifact remains of Theodore “Teddy” Tinker describe in detail some of the more peculiar Victorian trends when it came to childhood. The journey continues into adulthood where it diverges to illuminate leisure time verse work time. The work life of Robert Tinker was typical of many middle to upper class men of Rockford in the 19th century. Not only did Robert work in an office as an accountant and salesman but he also had luxurious gardens and ample farm land that needed regular care and maintenance. Work days were long and grueling but with the advent of new technology in-part to the Industrial Revolution, many Victorians were able to enjoy more relaxed time than their parents or grandparents could ever dream of. Experience the various leisure activities of Robert Tinker from drawings to furniture manufacturing, past habits to practical jokes. $7 adults, $6 seniors, $5 children.
