A vintage 1930’s, or I believe even earlier, a Halco masquerade costume by the J. Halpern Co., Pittsburg, Pa. This company was founded in 1917. What child, growing up then, wouldn’t have like to lead the charge parading in his continental solder uniform.
The jacket is polished cotton in a blue with great gold metal buttons snapping to the front. The pants are a heavier cotton with blue strips at the side seams. Drawstring waist band. A plain white camisole undergarment is included with the outfit.
