Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--September 2007

Figure 1.--This is 1/4 plate dag, signed by Williamson. I believe that the Williamson brothers operated a well-respected studio in Brooklyn, New York. We are not sure just when the studio was opened, but we note their dags dated to the mid-1850s. Thus we are unsure how to date the image here. It was proably taken about 1850, but we can't be more specific at this time. The unidentified boy has ringlet curls. This is one of the earliest portraits we have of boys wearing ringlets.

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.
