    Thanks for sharing this, Mark. I’m surprised to see so many soft dress hats in 1914.

    They were more popular than people think.....especially for "Country Folk". Stiff hats were more for the town and city dweller/worker. Damn near every city feller had a bowler/derby, not so for the country.
