1924 Hat advertisement

I love this sketch of a fashionable woman in a cloche hat, surrounded by a swirly art nouveau frame. It’s an advertisement for Gaier Mirror Hats, on 1221-1225 Washington Ave. in St. Louis MO. The next page is just a text advertisement for Lees Brothers Inc., at 1209 Washington Ave.

Jessica Kay Murray

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
