Welcome to Sepia Saturday
|Classmates, or future soul-mates, playing beside the Balance Rock, at Bar Harbor, Mt. Desert Island, Maine.|
It seems that Alan from
is taking off our "hats"
so to speak
and of course also featured in
this still photo
is a lovely lass.
If you click on the photo featuring mostly a gigantic rock
you will notice the children are in
the most lovely of head gear.
They do look like little sailors don't they?
So venturing through other very important reasons for "hats" other than wearing on a bad hair day or desire to look pretty or keep your head toasty warm...... follow along........
Did you know that the famous hat making company Stetson actually manufactured Army hats?
Amazing, hard pressed at work and hardly a hat worn inside the Stetson factory. Do you think they received a good discount on their own hat purchases? - Courtesy of Library of Congress, Washington, D.C. 1909-1920.
Which sombrero is your most favorite?
Hard to choose just one?!
1902, at least a thousand sombreros (hats) from a market in Mexico City. - Courtesy of Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.
Is the hat we wear, or the suit, that makes the man a gentleman?
Or is it the way he speaks?
Just what was this photographer (seated on roof of car) really after in his shot of this man?
"Excuse me sir, may I take your picture?"
Did anyone mention safety?
The importance of being safe...... Safety Hat production line, June 1943 New Orleans, Louisiana at the Higgans Shipyards.

and if you look closely, they weren't all alike....
It's so thrilling to search through the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. inside their Prints and Photographs department. (Actually, what isn't interesting there?) It's a place everyone should tour.
You can stumble across so many incredible people and places and accomplishments in such a short time.
Meet Mrs. Lawrence Townsend (although, I wish women would have used their own name more)
I just think Mrs. Lawrence Townsend has the most interesting smile as she gazes at these ladies with their hats.
It's probably something one of these high class society women said.....
What's going on.....here
a bit more of a clue as to who Mrs. Townsend was...her first name is Annie and she married a very important man.....
In The Photo: Mrs. Lawrence Townsend is at the Fourth Annual Rummage Sale of the Child Welfare Society as she trims discarded hats for the price of one year's milk supply for a Washington baby.

Pretty impressive what all "hats" can do, isn't it?
This post began with hats and a gigantic rock, so it's on the top of my list
nearly the same way.
Meet another gigantic rock.
What is it called? Well, Hat Rock of course. At Rock Hat State Park in Oregon.
Perhaps, Alan and his dog, Amy will venture through these parts....on their trek to New York....
