Pryce Jones Catalogue: Childrens' Clothes

Children were well catered for in the Pryce Jones catalogue. Although to modern eyes these outfits would seem to be for girls, they may also have been for boys.

Girl's cloaks were also sold. Boys probably wore coats or jackets like their father's.

Until about 8 years old, boys wore skirts. Sailor suits were very popular, both with boys and their mothers.
