I have a fair number of photos of my family decked out in their hats.

I even have an ancestress who made them.

The millinery shop of my g-g-grandmother, Mary Emily Conner, in Grenada Co., MS, about 1870-1875.

And there is even a lady with two hats! Also I like the way Elbert Burris wears his hat, very casual! The hats of your great-aunts Ocie and Arkie seem so huge. No wonder they keep them at their feet.
Thanks for sharing,
