Old Photos

It’s All About The Hats!!

scan002-1How about the hats?  Isn’t this a fabulous photo?  If I had a hat like one of these I would be excited about wearing.  These hats are a marvelous concoction of flowers, fringe, plumes and ribbons.  Was it difficult to walk with one of these creations on the head?  I suppose if you were ladylike enough to wear one you could keep it balanced!

I believe we could date our photo to around 1910.  I love the white lacy dresses and blouses worn at that time.  Too bad we don’t wear those fabulous gloves – such a fashion statement.
