Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--April 2011

Figure 1.-- We retrieved these various shots of first communion procressions in Germany. This one ws taken in the early-1950s. The boys are all wearing dark short trousers suits with white shirts and ties, and most of them wear white knee socks and black shoes. One of the boys in the procession follows the slightly older style and has black long stockings instead of the white knee socks but is in all other respects dressed like his schoolmates. They presumably attend a Catholic confessional school which gave their parents guidelines for how to dress. The boys also wear caps--either visored school caps or dark flat caps that match their suits. They all carry candles as they march through the streets, led by acoyltes with ecclesiastical banners, and attended by clergy, into a church where the Mass will be held. Parents can be observed on the fringes of the procession. The boys look to be about 7-9 years old, which in Germany was thr common age for making one's first communion in Catholic churches.

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.
