1909



I’d love to be able to dress up and wear a hat like this one. I wonder if it was heavy? Ladies in 1909 would be looking at this kind of creation in the shops and wondering what excuse they could give their husbands for buying yet another hat. The inscription on the back is actually dated 1915, I wonder where the card got to for six years?

And I know that the people liked to go to "fancy" places like Biarritz. And of course, the ladies did take several of this "masterpieces" along with them. In boxes. Big ones. Many of them.
