boy and (?) girl

yesterday, while looking up a type of dress mentioned in madame bovary, i came across a wikipedia article about the breeching of boys.  the following is an example of the awesome dress boys used to wear.  the original caption read “Boston, 1755-1760, boy and (?) girl”.

oh, the gems the internet will throw at you when you least expect it.

mesmerizing
