Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--June 2004

Figure 1.--This American portrait is undated, but as it was done as a split-back postcard we know it was made after the turn of the 20th century. We would estimate about 1910. The boy wears a classic small-jacket done in velvet. He has a large ruffled rather than lace collar which was common after the turn of the century. Notice the marvelous whicker chair. I'm not sure about the book he is looking at, but it might be a photographer's samples.

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 me know if you have any question about this new HBC feature.
