At the Society of California Pioneers they have some great hats from the late-19th century on display. These hats made in San Francisco are fairly self-explanatory. Click on the box labels for more details about the makers! One was made by Hermann & Co., while the other was done by Grunwaldt & Co., who claim to be "practical hatters," which begs the question, what would an impractical hat be? A fedora, perhaps? Maybe one that doesn't fit the head? I'm not sure. It sure is too bad that top hats are no longer considered "practical" today.
