The Zeppelin Hat

The Zeppelin Hat

This rather embarrassed looking girl is wearing a very odd creation photographed for the Central News Photo Service, New York, in August 1918:

“Our photo shows one of the latest freak fashions that has made its appearance in the “Zeppelin Hat” designed by Maison Lewis, London. It can certainly claim to be topical. It is the opinion amongst millinery critics that it will not become very popular in the United States.”

This photograph was offered for sale on eBay by Historic Images.
