Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--April 2014

Figure 1.--This Milian boy wears a short belted smock with a sailor collar. He wears knee knee pants and striped stockings with the smock. Note the jaunty way he is wearing his straw sailor hat which seems to have streamers. The CDV looks like it was taken in the 1870s, in part because of the striped stockings. The low-cut shoes have bows. The unidentified boy looks to be about 6 years old. The studio was Montabobe .

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.
