Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--October 2007

Figure 1.--Here we see a brother and sister sharing a wonderful teddy. We are not sure who it belonged to or if they shared it. Perhaps it was a studio teddy. Unfortunately we are not sure where the children are from. We thought the teddy looked rather German, but of course the Germans exported teddies. Nor do we know where tge children are from. We think they may be American, but are not at all sure. We believe the portrait was taken about 1930.

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.
