Bonny (?) bonnets

From June 1915 Woman's World magazine.

I used to collect hats. I still have an accumulation, but not a serious collection, any more, because it got trendy in the 1990s and the early part of this century, so the sorts I liked most became a little too pricey for me. After all, the most I ever spent on a good hat was thirty dollars for a top-of-the-line Stetson, at an auction. Now, I just look and snort.

Nonetheless, I am usually attracted to stylish head-covers.

Not these, however.

Have you noticed, none of these three little tots has a smile on her face? It's because the hats are horrid. One of those hat-wearers probably grew up to be my grumpy grandmother.
