AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A mother forces her son to wear gloves in order to impress a socially high-ranking lady. The son, knowing he will be the subject of ridicule, acquiesces. Following a fight with another boy (on account of the son's mode of dress) the mother relents and allows her son to burn the gloves and instead play football.
