Why is this boy in a dress? "Until about 1920, boys would wear dresses until they were ‘breeched’. i.e. given their first outfit which included breeches or trousers. Breeching happened from the age of about four to eight-years-old, and varied according to different eras and families." READ MORE HERE.
