Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose

Did You know……?
That in the 17th century both James I and his son, Charles, set a precedent by wearing only felt and not beaver hats? Both were worried about the declining numbers of beaver in the UK!



Also…

Deforestation was a major cause for concern in both 17th century England and France.

And deforestation is still an issue!

Plus ça change!
