I am interested in all things hat - this includes antique photos featuring hats. This is one showing a studio photograph of a couple with very interesting hats. He has a classic bowler (UK) or derby (US) while she is wearing a top hat with feathers on the top and a wonderful (riding?) jacket with swirls of braid. His suit is interesting too with the contrasting piping. Unfortunately there is a fox mark on each of the faces which makes these worthless from a commercial standpoint, but I still love the photograph. What a dapper couple! The photographers backstamp (Lowthian Brothers in Grmsby UK) is glorious with swans and reeds and decorative graphics around the edge. I notice that photographers from these times considered themselves artists.....funny how that has changed. Now everyone with a Sony Cybershot is a photographer but very few photographers are considered artists.

    You certainly do have some interesting images scottvez. I have quite a large collection of cab cards, CDVs and tin types, with a few degeurotypes as well - I will try to post some soon. I am reluctant to post my best images for the reason that I see on your site - people steal your images! Putting "not to be copied" only stops the honest people!

    Also - see our website as I have a wonderfully preserved civil war era book of CDVs with some of them shown there.

    Very nice photo! I especially love the Aesthetic Movement design on the reverse of the cabinet car! : )
