Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--October 2020

Figure 1.--This is a French sewing pattern packet illustration dated 1939-40. We do not fully understand the written instructions. The illustration clearly shows a boy wearing a romper suit with puffed sleeves and Perter Pan collar, and the illustration suggests a school-age boy. This is a litle surprising because except for pre-school, French boys did not generally wear rompers to school. What was common at the time was smocks. We believe that the scene here is meant to be mom helping the boy with his writing at home, preparing him for when he begins school.

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.
