WW - Heady the Hatter



In 1912 the last thing you want is for your hat to blow during the parade.

Love,

  1. Ooh. This is right up my alley. What do you know about this parade? I wonder if we have anything in our archives about this.

  2. Not just any parade, but The Causeway Auto Parade.

    Sounds spiffy. Like you'd need a 50 cent hat to attend.

  3. How in the world is it affixed to the head if it's guaranteed to stay in place? Glue?

  5. I'm picturing these guys who are the 1912 version of Mad Men coming up with this ad copy.

  8. Now I want to go out and buy vintage hats.

    I wonder what they did if the parade required them to all throw their hats in the air in triumph? Heady's no-blow-off hats might not be so popular then.

  9. Does anyone have a picture of this shop "Heady the Hatter" at 607 Mail that they could post or link to? I think this address is single family housing now in Houston TX.

  10. Anonymous,
    I'm not sure anyone does. The best person to check with would be Houston History Blog at the Chronicle or maybe the people at the Houston Architectural history center.
