A Church of Hats

For the second #ThrowbackThursday of every month, I usually feature a school class, but today it's a church congregation. One of the really fun things about the decade between roughly 1900 and 1910 were the really austentatious hats most women wore...and the hats shown in this photo are wonderful!

One has to wonder if these women felt pressure to compete with one another to have the more outrageous hat.

This is one of those times when I wish these old photos were in color: those hats must have been spectacular!

The minister is the only adult present not wearing a hat.

Even one little girl has gotten into the hat thing in a big way.
