Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--February 2014

Figure 1.--This colorized portrait was taken by A. Alex in Tallinn, probably during the 1930s. The sailor suit is a German style. Note the stripoed blouse and wjite string toe for the sailor scarf. We are not sure, however, if the boy if an ethnic German or Estonian.

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 us know if you have any question about this HBC feature.
