Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--March 2016

Figure 1.--This precious little Hungarian girl has just made it to the West in the dead of Winter, one of millions who had managed to escape from Communist Workers' Paradises. The press caption read, "Hungarian Refugees in Autria: The seasonal snow now blanketing lower Austria does mot prevent Hungarian refugees from crossing he border in large nimbers. Their difficulties re intensified by the cold. Before taking a bus to distributing nd collrctging cmpsin tghe interior, the exhusted refugees are welcomed with a warm drink and food at farm houses near the border. Red Cross nurses prepare the food on a 24-hour schedule. Photographed on arrival at the border farm-house is this little girl who was separated en route from her mother." We are not sure what she is hilding in her box. The photograph was taken in January 1957.

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.
