I saw one civilian oilcloth overcoat while at Between the Rivers this year. I know that oilcloth coats were quite prevalent in the 18th century, and oilcloth was used for ground cloths. But I cannot find much information on mid-19th oilcloth. I really like the look and the durability. And I love my Australian drover in Colorado weather. Thoughts or help is greatly appreciated. I am hoping to find an image that is appropriate or perhaps someone who can tailor an appropriate garment.
