How 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.
