I thought the Golden Age of men's fashion was in the 1930s, not the 1860s.

I'm from the Philly area, and both my parents were born and raised in town. I actually found this to be pretty cool. I see a lot of places that look familiar. It's amazing to realize my father was probably driving a cab around town while this was being filmed!
