Near Vilnius, Lithuania, about 1930. This boy is a relativelikely a nephewof Suzanne. The photo is in bad shape; I post because I love the use of the Lithuanian weaving as a wall hanging. The textile's design is in the family of "apple patterns." I presently am adapting a woven apple pattern for a sweater design.

Thanks to Suzanne's Granddaughter—my Kaunas Cousin—for making this photo available to us.

Looks almost like a soldier's suit he's wearing.

It looks like a Tyrolean-style sweater, I think.

You're probably right.

I was thinking of the tunics cadets at places like West Point wore.
