Chicago Millinery History: Edson Keith Postcard March 23, 2011

This Edson Kieth card is one from the turn of the century. The style of the hat gives the impression the feathers are reaching for the stars. Edson Keith papers in the Chicago History Museum are a series of letters from family papers that chronicle his east coast heritage. Just holding those old pages is a trip back in time. No pictures of hats, but some insight in how millinery was sold before this store was even opened.

Happy 82nd day of 2011!
