Colour and Sex

What was it about the early years of the 20th Century that caused people to start associating particular colours with particular genders? Just why did they decide that it should be pink for boys and blue for girls when no such association with colour had ever existed before.

The reasons for the reversal of the two colours by German women during the second world war is reasonably obvious but not the reasoning behind associating colour and gender in the first place.
