Today I am researching hats 1850 through 1960s, in preparation for a presentation next week at the Churchill County Museum. I am camped out at Starbucks, raiding all of The Dreamstress’ pinboards, and drooling over many a fine chapeau.
This just serves to remind me that I don’t have a proper hat for the Titanic Tea coming up April 14th. The tea shoppe we’re invading is rather a small space, so I should probably steerage-clear of a ginormous Merry Widow, and go for a smaller profile.
So in the spirit of inspiration, here are some 19teens hat of the smaller variety…
1908-1912. Okay, it’s not that small…but it’s not HUGE either…is it?
Mrs. John B. Trevor, ca. 1914, photographer’s wife. Autochrome
Emily Winthrop, ca. 1910 Autochrome by John Bond Trevor Sr.
Now just figuring out how to construct these… but that’s the fun part!
