Dresses and Kids

A bit more browsing thru various literature turned up a point I thought might be of some interest-- up to at least the 1890's boys as old as 8 might, at the preference of their mothers, be photographed not in knee length pants but in dresses. Again, look to the part in the hair for gender info if unsure-- If the dress the child is wearing exposes the shoulders, the date of the photo is probably early 1870 or before. Heady stuff, this fashion history! Tom

Tom,

I posted this one on another thread. You'll probably remember it. It is my uncle, and the photo was taken about 1912 (probably within 1 year either way).

You're doing a wonderful job of enlightening us Tom. Keep it up and I won't ever have to search out the info because I will already know it. Thanks for taking the time to share it with us. Ed's photo is a perfect example of what you are saying. I knew toddlers wore dresses but I didn't figure they still wore them after 4 or 5.

Wonderful photo Ed. The bangs help with time period ID and subtle left side part in the hair identifies the gender. The shoes are also interesting--I'll have to do some digging to get more info on them but cusory exam does show differences between them and ones of a decade or so earlier.
DJ; Stay tuned for the Real story on snoods and chignons--almost got the barn full of 'em now--branding begins next week. I'm breaking out the formal branding hoop skirt, so everyone ---take cover--incoming!!! Tom

Question Can you tell?

Putting little boys in dresses! They sure did.
The attached photo is of some of my family. Can you identify if they be HE or SHE? If anyone's interested, I'll post the answer.

My guess is the one standing in front of the father, and that there is only one boy. This is a fine example of an old family portrait. You can just see the innocence in the faces of the kids. Thanks for sharing that one.

Wonderful photo!! I'm guessing that this probably dates 1900-1910ish, the bangs make gender a challenge but from left to right---Boy, boy, girl. Tom
