Discussion in 'Hats' started by M Hatman, Nov 21, 2019.

  1. Here is a thread dedicated to OUR (ones you collect and OWN) business cards, ads, photo's and associated ephemera of HATTERS, Cleaners, and Dyers of old (lets say at least more than 30 years old)!!! I will note: MANY hatters offered cleaning services and MANY cleaners offered cleaning and repairing of HATS. Often BOTH also would DYE hats as well (in all cases going to a darker color to cover color loss and stains that cannot be removed, of course black was just re-blacked)!!!!! SO, please feel free to post the associated ephemera YOU ACTUALLY OWN. (lets keep this thread troll and internet image free;))

  8. GUESSING 1890's on this card. Cannot find information on the "New Post Office" other than some small references to different locations (one being near) located around the city. There was a huge new post office built over a 4 year period in 1931 and finished in 1935. It was about 3 blocks away from this address and of course this card is much earlier......
