American sailor suit
Figure 1.-- This oval format postcard back postcard shows an Amercan boy wearing a traditonal knickers sailor suit with three-stripe detailing. The collar detailing is repeated on the sleeve cuffs. There is also a rank badge on the sleeve. Harry has a loosely tied scarfe probably black and white dickie, but we can not make out the embroidered symbol. It looks to be a brand new suit which mom has bought in a slightly larger size than a good fit. This photo is dated and identified on both the front and back. This boy is 'Harry Reynolds, 1914' - 'May 1914, Son of Earl'. We are not sure how old he is, we would guess about 7-8 years old. Harry has a navy blue suit worn with black long stockings and high-top shoes, both fairly standard in the 1910s.
