The HBC biography section is for people or families that have achieved some degree of notariety or fame. HBC readers in many cases have submitted family portraits. HBC has until now not added them to the biography section. We believe now that this is a mistake. Many of the HBC readers contributing family portraits can also provide details about the boy and him family. This background information help us to assess social trends and put the fashions involved in perspective. This is just why the biographical section is an important part of HBC. As a result, HBC has decided to create pages for these relatively unknown people, when some basic family data is available. Incidentally if you find a relative here, please do tell us somehing about him. Here we are listing these biographies alpahabetically to facilitate looking up individual names. The alphabdetical list is the primary data base in this section. While we have not persued geneolgical resreach on these individual, having the names and in many cases the loaction provide the potential to acquire more back ground information in the future which may provide additonal insights into the fashion and life style trends.



















Unknown Family Name

We have generally reserved our ordinary people biography section to images for which we have the family name. Then we refer to these pages on other pertinent HBC pages. We have found a few images without the family name, but which we believe is a useful addition because we have the date of the image or other pertinant information. This is especially valuable for early periods for whivh the photographic record is more scanty than the 20th century. And we also plan to sort these listings by date. Also we load images here without family names because there is other useful information associated with the image. A good example here is Fritzle a little German boy in 1879. Another is an American brother and sister, probably in the late 1920s.
