"ca. 1885. A tall, top-hat style of rough straw.
"This post-boy (British mailman) hat of the mid 1880’s exemplifies the naturalistic style even further – dried raffia, poppies and a wheat-colored ribbon help to carry the impression. The hair style worn at the time would have been a twist and bun worn high on the head."
That must have been the post-boy in Cleveland Street, I should think. :eyebrows:
What wonderful shape they're in.
