Russian Boys' Skirted Garments: Chronology

Figure 1.--A Russian source dates this CDV portrait to the early-20th century, perhaps just before World War I. He tells us, " I found this portrait in ab old Russian town in the Ural mountains along the River Ural. It was a crossroads of trading roads from Asia and Europe. The majority of the population were cossacks. These people lived in remote areas and protected the Russian border lands." The children look to be about 3-12 years old, but are unidentified. the older child is probably a girl. The yonger child looks to be a boy. We are insure about the middle boy at the right.

Russian boys as in Western Europe, might wear dresses and other skirted garments. Out information at this time is still very limited. We have very little chronological information. We have few historical images. The convention of younger boys earig dresses of course goes back some time. At this time our information only goes back to the 19th century, and here only a smattering of images. We have a few images from the late-19th century. This convention as in Europe rapidly declined after the turn of the 20th century.
