Figure 1.--These Hungarian brothers were photographed in 1898 wearing wide-brimmed sailor hats. They were 3 and 7 years of age. There do no appear to be any elastic chin straps andperhaps even not even any streamers. Image courtesy of the MD collection.

Hungarian boys wore many different styles of sailor hats and caps. These appear to be he same styles worn by boys all over Europe. We not both wide-brimmed salor hats worn by younger boys with sailor suits and other outfits. Boys also wore caps based on the uniform styles of the Austro-Hungarian Imperial Navy in the years before World War I. Many of the details such as streamers, hat bands, and elastic chin straps are not yet available. Other styles of caps may hav also be worn, but we have only limited informtion at this time.
