Rompers: Morocco

boys rompers
Figure 1.-- This French mother with her two sons was photigraphed on the Boulevard of the Station in Casablanca, probably during the 1950s. The boys look to be about 2 and 4 years old.

We note images from Casablanca and other Moroccan cities with boys wearing rompers. These appear to be French people living in Morocco before and just after World War II when there was still a French protecorate. The individuls involve seem to be mostly French and the boys are wearing French-styled rompers. The French presence in Morocco included the period while rompers were especially popular in France. The rompers the boys here are wearing are a good example. The rompers appear to be a bib-front style worn with shirts rather than the romper suit style.
