Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--August 2004

Figure 1.--Here is a studio portrait from Christ Church, New Zealand. There is no date or name. We would guess that it was taken in the late 1890s or early 1900s. He has a small white bow in his curls. Looks to be 5 or 6 years old. Unless we had the name and location of the photograoher, we would have assumed the boy was Bfritish. (The portrait looks American, but the short socks rather than long stockings is an indicator that the boy was British, or in this case from New Zealand.) Image courtesy of the RG collection.

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.
