              • It was quite usual to dress small boys the same as girls in the LVP. My own grandfather (born 1894) was dressed in a similar fashion until he was about four years old, however seven seems a bit old to be dressed like that.

                • Infant boys and girls were generally dressed in the same type of clothes...in so far as colours were concerned, baby boys were dressed in pink (seen as a watered down red) and baby girls were dressed in pale blue (a watered down version of the colour of the virgin)... Historically, in many parts of the UK, small children of either sex were often referred to as "her"...

                    Hello Dave.

                    ". . . baby boys were dressed in pink . . . "

                    Certainly, Oscar Wilde. But he was like a shaft of gold shining out in the darkness. (heh-heh)

                    Cheers.

                    • Being dressed as a girl until at least 7 years of age could have a serious effect on a feller. He might even end up murdering and disemboweling prostitutes.

                      • Bloodhounds and their application during the Whitechapel Murder series have interested people for many years as to their potential in locating the Ripper....

                        Speaking of bloodhounds....can you name one serial killer who was located by bloodhounds ? His scent was picked up by sniffin' dogs....but not for connectivity to one of the serial murders....but another previous one.

                        Can you name him ?

                        • Answer : Arthur Shawcross

                          The killer who should have been executed, much less be released due to an insane plea bargain made with the authorities, was sniffed out by dogs following the first murder he committed upon a little girl. When apprehended, he was told that if he would direct the authorities to the body of a second victim...a little boy...he wouldn't be charged with the crime, only the first.
                          He served a few years....the citizens of Watertown, New York, were outraged by his flimsy sentence....and then when released, killed at least 11 women in the Rochester area.

                          In hockey, if a player passes the puck to another player who shoots and scores, he is credited with an assist.
                          In Shawcross's case....the Watertown authorities should be credited with an assist as it was they who allowed this psycho to return to society.
