Any ideas why in 1900 he would be dressed that way?

So sorry to hear of your sadnesses and send a hug  :-*

Little boys were often dressed like that until they were maybe 5-7, when they were 'breeched' i.e. put in trousers.

My father (b. 1905) wore dresses for a while as a youngster. We had a lovely little tartan dress of his. I think my sister had it.

                    I still do! :o :o :o ::) ::) ::) ;D ;D ;D

           I have it on good authority that when I was young, I had the most beautiful ringlets.

             Where the hell did they disappear to ??? ??? ??? ???

                A bit of colour.   As usual slightly bright to offset printing dullness.

              Can alter brightness, saturation etc. if required.

Apologies for this, and I could, of course (not unusual), be totally wrong, BUT

The child on the left, holding the doll, is the female - puffed sleeves on the dress AND why would you portray a boy holding a doll in this era?  The child on the right is the male - semblance of bow tie, no puffed sleeves.

I wondered about the child holding the doll when I saw Tomkin's colouring.
