Coolest Hats Ever
I recommend seeing it in the bigger size.
Princess Victoria Louise of Prussia hat especially rules. I feel like she would totally be a whiny goth girl, if alive today. Dye her hair black and scoff at "suits" walking on the street past her. Or something to that effect. Look I don't really know who Princess Victoria Louise of Prussia was, but I love old photos and the hats were neat.
I got this image from the Library of Congress Flickr Photo stream. They are putting photos from the Bain collection, which is one of America's earliest news picture agencies. On one hand I find the photos fascinating, but on the other hand it's quite frustrating because you don't have a lot of context to go on. However, these little gems are worth it.
