Savile Row, Bath

This little street is at the back of the Costume Museum in Bath. The museum had a display of pockets wherein the rhyme "Lucy Locket lost her pocket" becomes clear since pockets were originally independent pieces of cloth attached to clothing by strips of material. Men's pocket's seem to have evolved independently as part of their jackets or waistcoats.
