Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--January 2011

Berlin Liberty Bell
Figure 1.--Here we see the Schoeneberger Saengerknaben by the Berlin Liberty Bell during Christmas (1958). We believe they often sang there, but do not have the details. They wear dark short trousers suits with white knee socks, open-collared white shirts, and black slip-on shoes. We believe thiswas an annual Christmas tradition, but hopefully our German readers will provide actual details. Notice the emblems on their uniform with the Berlin bear.

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.
