This photo is of my Grandfather, Roy Sherman Childers at age 2, taken in 1920. His brothers, Herman Lewis Childers and William Joseph "Billy Joe" Childers both say that in the early 1900's, they would dress little boys in dresses/smocks for pictures until they were around 3 years old or until potty-trained. Roy was the son of Stephen Milford Childers and Effie Mae (Pettit) Childers. He was born April 10, 1918 in Diswood, Alexander County, Illinois and died January 08, 1988 in Edmond, Oklahoma County, Oklahoma. He married Beulah Mae Webster on April 13, 1940 in Jefferson City, Cole County, Missouri. They were married until she passed away in 1985. Together they had two children, a son and a daughter. We do not know the reasoning behind the bows in the boy's hair, but Grandpa's brothers are also pictured with bows in their hair when they were little.
Date & Place: in Alexander County, Illinois United States

In the early 1900s young boys would wear dresses until around the age of 3. I didn't know that they did hair similar as well? Adorable photo of Roy Sherman Childers.
