Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--November 2013

English prep schools
Figure 1.--School uniforms are one of several types of uniforms worn by boys. We have limited information about historic school unifirms, but know boys in English grammar schools wore blue uniforms (16th century). Uniforms were common in British boarding schools in the 19th and 20th centuries. After World War II, uniforms became common in state schools. These boys attended a prep boarding school in the 1980s.

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.
