In the Victorian era, boys wore frocks with pleated skirts, or tunics and blouses over pleated skirts, until the age of three or five. Often you will also see a tartan sash. A portrait of the Prince of Wales in a Scottish kilt in 1849 gave rise to this vogue for boys. This is a beautiful old 1860's Civil War era Gilchrist family photo from the beautiful Victorian Saratoga area. He is beautiful! Also see this Gilchrist ancestor.
