Photo Details

This photo of an unknown boy scout is absolutely amazing! I do not know the young boy, but it looks as though this photo could have been used to promote the Boy Scouts of America organization - it's that perfect.

Having been a boy scout for years myself, I have a true appreciation for this photo. I'm just glad I didn't have to wear pants that like when I was a young boy!

This photo was purchased in an antique shop in San Jose / Santa Clara California.

Mystery: Who is this mystery boy scout? What year does it look like this photo was taken?
in USA

Lynita Tate He's wearing the new style shirt that came into play around 1922 so it looks like the 1920-era.

Tracey Willis What was the reasoning behind the design of pants like that?

Lynita Tate jodhpur-style breeches worn with tall boots became particularly associated with military staff officers who wore uniforms based on riding apparel, often derived from the cavalry tradition from which many nations historically drew their corps of top commanders. They originate from an ancient style of Indian trouser called the Churidar. (adapted from Wikipedia)

Lynita Tate I think the reason was because it had become a very popular style in that era
