Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--April 2007

Figure 1.--Here is a group of Untersekunda students in 1928. They would be at a Gymnasien / Oberschulen. Notice the school cap. Also notice their ages. They look about 14 years old to me, but our table on school levels suggest boys in this class would be about 15-16 years old.

Some HBC readers tell us that they would like to be able to access new pages, but do not want to receive E-mails on every new page added to HBC. We have also for several years now experienced problems dealing with AOL. Thus we have created this page for HBC readers. We will list new pages or existing pages to which we have added additional information. We used to maintain a page like this. We know from this experience that we sometimes forget to add a new page, but we will try to remember to do this as much as possible. There will not be a link on our home page so you will want to add this to your favorites/book marks. We plan to only make this page available to readers who support HBC. There may be occasional changes in the URL. Just let me know if you have any question about this new HBC feature.
