Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--December 2016

Figure 1.--This Lydia Field Emmet portrait was entitled 'The Brothers'. It was painted about 1909. We do not know who the boys were, obviously a well-to-do family. The older boy has short hair and may be about 8-years old. He wears a white summer sailor suit with white abkle sicks and pumps. The abkle socks were unuual at the time. His younger brother looks to be about 5-6 years old. His hair is dine in page boy bangs. He wears what looks like a blusish grey frock. At the time tunics were popular, but frock like this one were going out of style for boys. Like his brother, he wers white sovks and pumps.

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 questions about this HBC feature.
