Belgian Mail Order Catalogs and Advertisements with Boys Clothings: 1953

Figure 1.--

The Belgian magazine Vrouw en Huis ("Woman and Home"). We have some issues from the early 1950s. It was a weekly magazine and as it was in Dutch for Flemish readers, was also sold in the Netherlands. I'm not sure how popular it was among French readers. The magazine in the early 1950s showed paterns for short pants satin outfits for little boys' best outfits worn with short coats during the winter. Knitting patterns for sweaters were popular. Short pants outfits for boys were very common.
