    Thanks to @Redfokker (Mike) for the Scoop's storefront image. Best I could do was finding the store's sign hidden behind a café sign (on the right).

    Great idea for a thread, Bob. I think I only have a couple of examples. I'll need to dig around.

    Sent directly from my mind to yours.

    This one is maybe a bit of a cheat, because Halle Bros. had more than one location and the hat doesn't have a specific address. But both the original Halle building and the Halle Shaker Square building are on the National Register of historic places. Actress Halle Berry (born Maria Halle Berry) was named after the store.

    Hat is a cool indigo blue Milan from the Ecuadorian Panama Hat Company of New York under the Supernatural label. There are a few other examples from this manufacturer around the lounge.

    Circa 1929 Stetson "Tropic Weight". I think this store may have been in the same location as Nafziger (above) in Nampa, Idaho. There was a grocery store with the same name located there at some point.
