Chicago Millinery History: Pretty Lady Picture-Motal & Stradiot April 10, 2011

December 1944 and this gal is attending a fancy dinner.  Perhaps a wedding reception, or a venue with the services of a “candid photographer.” The reverse of the photo gives two phone numbers in Chicago; Rockwell 8737, and Crawford 4098, of the north side of the city.

This might be called a tilt hat, as it is off to the side, or even a toy hat, as it has the small crown popular in the 1940s. And long feathers, adding to the fashionable accent ladies adore.

Happy 100th day of 2011!
