Ah you see, I'm but a young bachelor, and cannot be taking such risks!
My suggestion is not to be a complete slave to the period, as parts are expensive and often not all that great (steel rims, for instance). The crankset is already a bit of a deviation anyway, so I'd be tempted to build it up how you want it to be. So my suggestion would be some basic, box-section polished alloy wheels, KMC Z510 HX chain (shiny!), Sturmey Archer freewheel (more shiny!), gumwall tyres and then some classic Maes-type drops. If you go for 700c wheels, which is the simpler option, I have a pair of brand new Panaracer Pasela gumwalls (lovely tyres) with Schwalbe tubes and rim tape I could throw in as a sweetener.
