Isn't he adorable? No question it's a boy - even over a century ago. But would we dress boys in big ruffles today?

Jean LaRue White It wasn't really a big city in those days - you had to work hard to be affluent.

It didnt matter the size of the city/town then....my father's family came from farms/farm country outside if any large cities in central Illinois and for the time they "had money"/were affluent in their communities....in the studio photos they were dressed like this too

His father was a tailor in his own tailor shop. Might explain his dress. His father also owned his home, free and clear. Earl's parents were both from Denmark., and Earl was abut 2-3 in this photo. He was born in Jan of 1898, in Seattle.

I would not say that this family was especially affluent, but they did okay for themselves. My granduncle, Earl (pictured in ruffles here), was the 2nd of eight children. His father, a tailor, made all of his children's clothing. :)

Pulls out this picture and slaps it on the table as he signs the paperwork checking the parents into a retirement home.

I am thinking at the time, the very little boys were dressed for convenience and rather feminine to signify they were not yet ready for the greater world where they would be working or for a lucky few, engaged in school work for 8-12 years +. They were still under the influence of their Mother, female relatives, or employed care-giving staff such as a Governess/Nanny or Housekeeper. They did dress up for photographs as well as Church if they attended.

No we wouldn't dress boys in ruffles today, unless they wanted them.

Why little boys were so emasculated in pictures is beyond me. Not for my sons.

This is my granduncle, Earl Andersen, brother of Hazel Andersen (whose baby photo you posted here on 30 Jan 2019). He was born 15 Jan 1898 in Seattle to Danish immigrants Steffen Andersen and Anna Christine Hansen. His father was a talented and popular tailor who made clothing for all 8 of his children. I assure you that the ruffles here caused no long-term trauma. Haha! He did just fine for himself. :)
