School Book Bags: Hungary

Figure 1.--The two school boys here with a younger brother both carry portfolio-style book bags. Notice the boy on the left wears his front-buttoning smock open.

Hungarian boys in the 1960s often had portfolio-style bookbags. Many boys seem to have had similar book bags. I believe these bags were quite common among Hungarian schoolboys. I do not think that the styles were required by the schools, but may have reflected the limited availability of comsumer products in Eastern European Communist countries.
