Canadian Boys' Neckwear: Types--Bow Ties

Figure 1.--This tin-type portrait shows a boy wearing what looksd like a small bow tie. The portrait was taken by Climo in Saint John, New Brunswick. We are not at all sure how to date it. We would giess the 1890s, but we are not at all sure.

We have seen Canadian boys wearing bow ties, but we are not sure just how common they were. We do not yet have chronoligal information on bow ties. We see some 19th century portraits of what look like boys wearing bow ties, although we are not entirely sure. We see many more portaits with bow toes after the turn of the 20th century.
