Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--February 2019

Figure 1.--This photograph shows a school a crowd of people, mostly kids from the same school, behind a police cordon. We are not sure about the date, but thin it may be the 1930s, but it could be the 1950s after the War. The New Ideal advertisement could be the 1930s or 50s, but probably ot the 40s. At first we thouht it might be a group on the street awaiting a royal or other notable pass by. But if you look close there is no street or houses and shops in the background, but there is a curb. Nor is anyone waving a Union Jack. So we are guessing that it may be the edge of a cricket ground, explaining the advertising billboards. The boys' caps indicate that mos of the boys were from the same school. It looks to be a private prep school. Sport, escpecially rugby and cricket were major activity at privte schools. The boys probably used public trasit to get to cricket ground.

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.
