United States Boys' Clothes

Figure 1.--The Duke University EAA site has a variety of advertising that touch upn clothing, either clothing ads like this one or other adverisements in which clothing is depicted. The hats are offered by the Wm. Reinerth & Co in New Orleans, but are not dates. HBC would estimate the 1890s.

HBC has begun to collect information on interesting sites with useful information about clothing and history and related topics. We know many of our readers have specific interests and often want to pursue them in greater depth than they are currently covered in our web site. Hopefully they will report some of their findings back to HBC. Please let us know if you find important sights that should be linked here.

The Emergence of Advertising in America (1850-1920)

The Emergence of Advertising in America (EAA) presents over 9,000 images, with database information, relating to the early history of advertising in the United States. The materials, drawn from the Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library at Duke University, provide a significant and informative perspective on the early evolution of this most ubiquitous feature of modern American business and culture.
