Historic Clothing Collection

Children's Wear

For the second half of the 19th century children’s fashions mirrored adult styles. This selection gives a brief outline of the MHS collection of childrens’ wear, which at present includes a large quantity of 19th century baby and children’s white undergarments and clothing and select examples of everyday or more formal wear. As yet, representation of children’s 20th century clothing is limited.
