Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--September 2004

Figure 1.--This is a portrait of an Americn boy. All we lnow about the portrait is that it was taken in Aurora, Indiana. We would guess it was taken in the 1910s, about 1915-19, possiblr 1920, but not much later. Notice the wide white collar and double breasted styling. The relatively short tunic and kneepants suggest to us that the portrait was taken about 1915-20 rather than the turn of the century. Image courtesy of the MD 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.
