Comments

Do let me know if you have any interesting comments or insights about new material posted on HBC. I have been a bit disappointed that while a few people that have accessed HBC have made marvelous contributions, many people just surf without making any effort to reasonably contribute to our understanding of historical boys' clothing. As you know I can only go so far with the images I have colleted. The material you have so kindly contributed has made a trmendous difference in building an interesting and informative site.
