Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--September 2013

Canadian history
Figure 1.--It has taken a while for Canadian national feeling to take root. At first it was primarily the idea that Canadians did not want to be Americans. (Something it took Americans two wars to figure out.) French Canadians at first decided that the British would protect their unique culture better than the Americans, the same calculation Native Americans made although with less success. And the English-speaking Canadians did not develop the same geviences that Americans did, perhaps there because there was not a long tradition of self rule in Canada as there was in America. As a result, at the turn of the 20th-century, many Canadians still thought of themselves as British more than Canadians as apparently does this boy in British Colombia and his parents. The cabinent card portarit is not dated, but was probably taken around 1900-05.

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.
