    What a great collection of "boater" ads! I think they are very useful from a historical standpoint.
    I notice that most just refer to them as "straw hats", just as most (nearly all?) pre-war ads for what people nowadays call trilbies and fedoras just call them "hats" or at most "felt hats".

    Since people on this forum were so kind about previous pics of our boaters out and about at parties, etc., I am taking the liberty of posting a few more, conscious of the fact that these are nothing compared to the amazing collector's items posted on this thread...

    This was the second annual Pukka Picnic ("Boaters, Bubbly and Belles").
    Fewer boaters than last year (?) but a decent showing of hats.

    These period ads a brilliant; they really give a sense of how these hats were perceived adn marketed, at the time.
