My lovely friend Alexis sent me a new cloche for Christmas that just arrived! Christmas Cloche, I love you so much. Can I be an extra in The Great Gatsby yet?
1896 Cigarette Card Hignett’s Cigarettes
That hat is crazy. It looks WAY more 1790 than 1890.
Originally by Hignett’s Cigarettes, digitized by NYPL Archives.
Unfortunately, there’s no identifying information regarding this photo but I couldn’t resist including her amazing hat in this archive. The woman is likely from Monrovia, California and the photo was taken in 1940.

FS says: I’ve been reading much behind-the-scenes Churchill what with Lord Moran’s Diary, Churchill’s bodyguard’s book, and Peter Clarke. And between them all, I find myself, multiple times a day, even when I’ve not actually been reading, sort of giggling to myself and muttering, “oh, Churchill, you so silly!”
And now … hats. Oh Churchill, you so silly.
Hats of Churchill. All times, all seasons…
