Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--May 2016

Figure 1.--A man representing himself as James Mackay was painted by William Allsworth surrounded by his large family and two nephews and a mountain of luggage. They are departing the Scottish Higlands and headed for New Zealand in 1844. The children are depicted in two groups. We think that the left group are sons James Junior and Robert with one of their sisters. Thy look to be out 6-13 years old. James wears a Highland kilt outfit with Glengarry, black military jacket, kilt sporran and other reglia with knee socks. His younger brother robert wears a checked dress and plaid sash. were not sure about his hat. Their older sister wears a bonnet, clok and dress. We do not note any thing Scottish. Put your cursor on the image to see the right group. Here we see mother and three more childre, One of the Mackay girls and the two nephews: Alexander Tertius Mackay and James Tertius Mackay. This group looks looks about 7-13 years old.The girl wears a dark dress, again without any Scottish styling. We do not see his hat. The older boys looks to be wearing a plaid tunic with pantalettes and a cap we can not quite make out. Wemight have thought the younger boy would have worn this. His younger brother wears a plaid wrap and a tam. As yiu can see kneesocks, we are guessing he is wearing a kilt.

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.
