    I am keeping a look out for vintage maritime photos - specifically ones showing the clothing of seafarers.

    Right now these are all I have found that are decent:

    Fishermen, Hamburg 1925

    The reason I am doing this is for clothing research. I am trying to collect some information and then use this to refine my wardrobe more. I have one site that is really good that I found: https://www.mun.ca/mha/mlc/articles/dead-men/sailors-kit.php

    Plus, my "Rund Kap Hoorn" book [in German] has a good list of harbor, winter, and summer clothing.

    I am not looking to wear period pieces, but use modern pieces that most closely resemble what was used.
