Sepia Saturday August 17, 2013

Although these fair ladies were not going to a picnic, they were all wearing hats!  Here is a selection of various hats.  My thought is that the one standing in the back (right) looks alot like the one sitting (center).  For some reason, two have the same kind of coat. However, they are all nicely outfitted.

  2. A wonderful hat parade! Perhaps the two in matching coats were sisters. I hear you like berets; if you have a moment I've a beret story on my other blog here. That's a lovely new smiley picture of you.

  3. What a spectacular photograph. They were certainly wearing their Sunday Best. In these days of cheap clothing the whole idea of "Sunday Best" seems to have vanished.

  4. Yes, Alan, I agree. When I make the effort to get dressed up, people around me look at me and say, "Why are you all dressed up for?" I simply say, it makes me feel good....

  5. They look ready for a girls' night out on the town - although perhaps that sort of thing wouldn't have been quite de rigeur for the 1900s, when I presume this portrait was taken. Great photo, Rosie.

  6. I think the lady front right has similar eyes to the other two - maybe all sisters?

  12. As there are muffs in evidence I guess it must be cold, The two are so alike they might even be twins.

  13. Love the hats and the expressions on their faces. Photography must have been a very painful process way back when.

  14. Loved the hats. A sister of my grandfather McPherson owned a millinery shop -- which was very posh for the day and place. She lived in a smallish town so ladies hats must have been very important in the late 1800 and early 1900s. In fact, as I remember my twin aunts, in their younger days they ALWAYS wore hats and gloves. Great photo which brought to mind a whole bunch of family memories. Thanks

  15. The hats make a wonderful fashion accessory. I have never been a hat person myself (I over heat) but to me, hats are a much nicer accessory than facial piercings!

  16. Fabulous photo! I really love the muff ... is it fur? It's hard to tell on my screen. Thanks for sharing!

  17. Wow! Do you think this style will EVER come back? In a way I think it would be crazy-fun... :)

  18. Hats were so grand and everyone wore them. But I often think about being in close quarters with all these hats bobbing about. I imagine there were a lot of "Excuse me." "Sorry." Sort of like bumper cars.

  19. @Tattered and Lost----I think that is when they introduced the 3 foot "personal" space rule....LOL
