This weekend I was in San Francisco, and I went to the fort under the Golden Gate Bridge called Fort Point, which was built in about 1769 to protect the bay against the British and the Russians.
In 1850, California was annexed to the United States and, three years later, the work on the fort began. So, if you were a physician in those years, what would you wear?
You got it! A sash around your jacket and a plume in your hat! (For those of you that don’t know what a plume is, it’s a feather in your hat!).
