1. Those old news clips from the 50s are priceless and sometimes illustrate how long the road is to attitude change when you consider the references made to ‘fickle women’, ‘woman’s place in the kitchen’ and of course the clip on animal fur and skins. Interesting though that they made a ref to vegetarians in the crazy hats clip. The Billingsgate Bobbin hat clip was really good, such a practical piece of headwear! Hope you don’t mind me sharing a link to my post about a huge lot of 1920s – 1950s hat advertisements I picked up recently? I can’t resist a good hat: https://thevintagetoyadvertiser.org/2018/03/14/vintage-hats/
