Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--November 2004

Figure 1.--Here we see an example of a mother usung a sailor suit to coordinate the clothing of her children. three thrre American children, we think from Oklahoma. The portrait is undated, but we woulf guess was taken about 1910. The two older children wear sailor suits styled slightly differently. We assume that they are brother and sister, although as we have no provinance there is no way to be sure. We have seen many boys wearing ringlets curls like this. Here age would be a factor. The child at right looks older than the charge at the left which is why we think the child at the right may be a girl.

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.
