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.

Really wonderful images! I feel like I've stepped back into time.

The last shot has me perplexed because the fellows in the front are obviously sitting but the guy on the left looks like his legs are simply missing.
