From the 1880's, until well into the 1900's, for formal photographs, small boys of proper fashion wore dresses and had their hair in long ringlets. When just bit older they graduated to "Lord   Fauntleroy" attire with wide ruffled and laced white colors on their dress shirts, velvet jackets and short pants, and black hose. One step older and they wore tailor, jackets, short matching pants and vest, and white shirts with a large bow tie.

 This same Schraa group, plus one, was photographed  only a short time later.  The oldest is now in long pants with a string tie, the baby of the previous photo has inherited the Lord Fauntleroy  and standing to the far right we see the latest fashion showing up, the military look.

Oldest photos of the family were taken in Green Bay, where the children were born. Later, the widow Veronica Bibelhausen Schraa moved to Oshkosh, where more recent photos were taken.
