Boys from the Claddagh
Description:A sketch of five children from the Claddagh in Galway. One child is in female attire, but there was a custom in the Claddagh of dressing small boys in female clothes. This might explain the title of the sketch which was published in 1873 by the 'Illustrated London News'. Four boys are wearing hats, all are barefoot and two have very large baskets. There is a boat on dry land nearby.
