Description

I wrote this account of my family’s fashion styles based upon an extensive collection of family letters illustrated with photos, period catalogs, magazine ads, and color images of 61 family hats that I retrieved and restored.

This is history viewed from the family level across five decades spanning events such The Great Depression and WWII reflected in fashion and styles with a focus on the hats worn, both bought and created, by my maternal Grandmother Mamie and the generation that followed.
