Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--September 2014

Figure 1.--These two Cumbria children look to be about 10 years old. They are dressed up for a pecial occassion, perhaps a May Day celebration. Their clothes, however, are not costumes, but look like their best dress outfits. The girl wears a white dress. The boy a Highland kilt outfit. Notice their medals. These are probably academic wards. The cabinet card portrait is undated, but the mount looks like the 1890s to us. The studio was J.R. Wilkinson in Brackelands, Wigton. Wigton is in Cumbria, the northern English county bordering the Scottish Lowlands.

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.
