Nicaraguan Schoolwear

Figure 1.--These Nicaraguan schoolboys were photographed in 1911 with their school slates. One boy wears a military-looking cap and the other a rounded hat. Both boys go barefoot in the tropical cliamte.

We have only limited information on Nicraagua. A early 20th century photograph shows schoolboys wearing a military peaked cap and a rounded haThe military cap may be part of a national school uniform. It looks to small to be an adult cap the boy may have inherited. Both boys wear kneepants. The boys go barefoot in the tropical climate. "ARTE NUEVO" written on one of the slates means "new art". I'm not sure why this was written there.
