When referring to someone from a different geographical area and a different time, what is the proper phrase to refer to them? "Back then" or "back there"? Does it depend on if your intended meaning is to highlight the time difference, or if you are highlighting a geographical difference?
Example: referring to first century Roman attire
"Back then, men wore togas" vs "Back there, men wore togas"
Example: referring to 19th century British fashion
"Back then, men sported long side-whiskers" vs "Back there, men
sported long side-whiskers"
