The eighth step in my A-Z of quirky ancestor antics - H is for hats, quirky hats

No doubt our future selves will look back at our past selves and wonder at the things we wore back in the old days. Today, on 9 April 2016, I thought I'd collate a few photos of the hats of my ancestors - some quirky, some stylish, some cute. Hope you enjoy them as much as my family and I do when we look back into the past through our old photographic memories.

  1. I love how hats can help us identify the era of a photo, especially in the young. The little girl's hat is so cute and the couple in the 1940s pic look so stylish. It's interesting to look back and remember that men, women and children always wore hats when going out.

  2. Yes, we wear hats for such different reasons. I wish I had a pic of me in my old school hats - they would have been hilarious!
