While browing through old editions of The Portsmouth Daily Times Newspaper, I discovered this advertisement from 1927 from Flora Dellert for hats. Through my family history research, I discovered there are several ladies in my ancestry with milliner listed as their occupation. My 2nd great Aunt Dessie loved to wear hats and luckily for her, her step-mother was a milliner!
Here she is pictured with what must have been one of her favorites.
I certainly don't think I would ever have wanted to wear a bustle, but I think I would have enjoyed wearing hats like these very much! Let's go shopping!
