Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--November 2011

Figure 1.-- We notice a cabinet portrait of Carl Peirce posed with his violin. The writing of his last name is a little indestinct. The studio is Busby, Mcurdy, and Fritz, an interesting ethnic mix. The studio was located in Boston. Along with the boy's name, we know that he was 8 years old. We are not sure just when it was photogrphed, but it looks like the 1880s. Carl wears a collar-buttoning velvet jacket with two rows of metal buttins. It kooks like it was a dark colar, but not black. He wears the suit with an elaborate pin-on lace collar and matching wrist trim. Along with the lace collar, Carl has a rather small collar bow.

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.
