Swedish Boys' Garments: Spatts/Putees

Figure 1.--This boy in white long stockings is wearing what look like a child's version of spats, also called s putees. We think the boy is Swedish, but we are mot positive. Notice what looks like home-cut bangs. We do know the boy's age--3 years and 8 months. It was probably taken in the 1910s.

We note one little Swedish boy wearing putees/spatts, a footwar garment generally worn in well-to-do families to protect expemsive shoes. Putees were worn mostly by adults, mostly men and women, but we occassionaly see children wearing them in the early-20th century.
