We are fortunate to have had some distinguished artist who risked their lives to venture into the Rocky Mountain west to document the fur trade. Unfortunately photography wasn't readily available and common until the late 1840's....most specifically the War with Mexico. So as you said the painter was the picture journalist of the early 1800's. Unlike many artist who painted in studios from memory, these guys painted what they saw on the spot. Most of the photos of today's historical impressions are to the untrained eye.... not always the best source for replicating period correct impressions....no matter how "awesome" or "authentic" they might appear. Until the internet fur trade impressions were mostly dependent on someone else research or "mental images". It has gotten a whole lot easier then it was back in the early 70's.

I can't speak entirely for this site but it seems to have a lot of good documented information for the western fur trade.

I read that sight all the time. It's pretty good. They talk about clothing, but not how it's worn.
