Little Lord Fauntleroy Suits: Individual American Boy (About 1895)

Figure 1.--This unidentified American boy wears a classic Fauntleroy suit. He apparently insisted on being photographed with his dog. Notice his straw boater.

We notice two portraits of a little American boy. The photographs look to have been made on the same day. Unfortunatly the boy is unidentified. We do not knw when or where it was taken. He looks to be about 5 years old. He has short hair, so his hair was apparntly cut before he was breached. It looks to be done in a roughly cut bangs. He is photographed with his dog in both portrairs presumably he insisted on this. In one portrait he wears a classic Fauntleroy suit with a ruffled collar and large floppy bow. He has a classic jacke and kneepants. He has a straw boater hat. A companion portrait shows what he would have worn perhaps on a arm day. It looks like a white ruffled blouse worn with detchable wide collar, again with a floppy bow. It looks to be the same blouse, but with a different collar. This illustrates the exprssion "shirt tail young ones". Little boys were allowed to wear just their shirts. Men were expected to wear jackets.

Figure 2.--Here the boy was photographed without his jacket and with a different collar.
