lluvbertie,

Thank you very much for your helpful reply.

I'm embarrassed to say that I hadn't considered the local library! I will pay them a visit next week, although I suspect that they got rid of the michrofich (sp?) machine and reels years ago.

Having removed that actual method would possibly mean that they have a digital copy available online somewhere...

Yesterday (February 6) was the anniversary of George VI's death, a couple of photos from Tumblr that caught my eye.

This one is George VI as a baby/toddler, he bears a striking resemblance to his daughters when they were babies/toddlers. (source)

Very cute! The hat seems strangely familiar...

It is a nice hat and at least Albert's not wearing one of those awful cut-down ball gowns complete with lots of petticoats that little boys were dressed in during the 1860's. There are several photos of the future king George V and his brother in such outfits. It was a very strange fashion.

Yes, but 1860's/70's fashions for small children of both sexes were particularly foul, off the shoulder numbers for special occasions, made from silks and satins, and hair for little boys as well as girls sometimes twisted into ringlets. In the early 1860's there were even mini-crinolines for both sexes. By the 1890's all that had gone and although very little boys tended to be put into smocks over a petticoat or two you could usually see they were males!

Queen Victoria decided to dress her son Prince Albert Edward, when he was four, in a sailor suit of the British Royal Navy. The Prince of Wales wore the sailor suit when his family visited the Channel Islands in 1846. British boys began wearing sailor suits in the 1860s.
