    Hopkins was an old firm based in Baltimore. They were known for their straw hats. I have one of their Panama hats which is quite nice. Higher quality then you would find, for example, at Lock & Co today.

    They are out of Business. The dates I have are from 1875 to 1964? At their peak in the 1920's.
