AN ADORABLE YOUNG CHILD IN WOOL COAT AND STOCKING CAP

wool-coat

This vintage real photo postcard features a young child ready for winter. The child is wearing a long wool coat and a stocking cap and is standing on a wicker chair. This coat may have belonged to an older sibling because it clearly does not fit the child in the photograph. The coat hangs very low but the real give-away is that the coat’s sleeves hang well below the child’s hands. The unused “fashion statement” postcard has a “Cyko” stamp box indicating that it dates sometime between 1904 and the 1920’s.

  1. The crease in each sleeve seems to indicate that they were turned up at some point, maybe just before the photo was taken. Parents had a sense of humor? On the other hand [pun intended], kids were meant to grow into hand-me-downs before the garments wore completely out.
