Let's go with kids in hats for my sharing on Sepia Saturday this week. Click here for more fun answers to this prompt.
And everyone knows what fun it is to keep a hat on a baby. Here's my mother, whose baby pictures resemble my sister a lot. 1917
My grandmother, Ada Rogers (Gummy) holding baby Mary, and I'm wearing some kind of floppy bonnet, Feb 1946. I'm sure my grandmother knitted all of Mary's outfits and blankets.
Bright red wool skirts and tams, with hand embroidered blouses ...all my mother's relatives. Skirts and hats by grandmother (Mom's mom was a seamstress) and the blouses by Aunts Alice and Gertie Attaway (2nd cousins perhaps) but one of them was the first woman dentist in Texas. This was not 1950, as we were no longer in Houston by then, but probably 1949.
Later in the winter of St. Louis, these hats aren't too clear, but I'm pretty sure they were just Navy knit things, called tobaggans at one point, which matched our Navy Pea coats.
Tai wouldn't really like this hat any more, but this was taken before he became disillusioned by theme parks. (Yes he was a bit old for that stroller, but when he got tired of walking, you bet he appreciated it!)
Many a happy kid's face is shielded by a baseball hat!
