More Magnificent Hats - Wordless Wednesday.


What magnificent hats were worn (above)  by Mary Jane Oldham, nee Bailey and her sister-in-law Sarah Butler, nee Oldham?   Mary Jane Bailey  and my grandfather William Danson were cousins.   Below is another creation worn by Sarah's sister Edith.



And in case you missed an earlier posting, have a look at   Sarah's Wedding Hat

With thanks to my third cousin Stuart for the use of these marvellous photographs of another age.  



Wordless Wednesday is one of many daily prompts from www.geneabloggers.com to encourage writers to record their family history - here the emphasis is on photographs.

  1. How cool - I suppose a real lady was not properly dressed without her hat.

    But I wonder how much they weighed?
