Baltimore Hats

Book cover
By: (1841-1926)

Baltimore Hats by William T. Brigham is a fascinating and comprehensive exploration of the history and significance of hats in the city of Baltimore. The author skillfully weaves together historical anecdotes, personal stories, and cultural analysis to paint a vivid picture of how hats have played a central role in Baltimore's identity and sense of style.

Brigham's writing is engaging and knowledgeable, making this book a pleasure to read for anyone interested in fashion, history, or urban studies. The book invites readers to reflect on how clothing choices can be both practical and deeply symbolic, and how something as seemingly simple as a hat can hold layers of meaning and embody a sense of community and tradition.

Overall, Baltimore Hats is a well-researched and thought-provoking read that sheds light on a lesser-known aspect of Baltimore's rich cultural heritage. Highly recommended for anyone looking to deepen their understanding of the city's history and the role of fashion in shaping urban identity.

Book Description:
It is not impossible that some useful information may be conveyed by this book. Should these pages prove of such service, their cost in labor is most cheerfully donated.

This volume is composed of a series of articles which appeared in a Trade Journal, covering a period of two years from 1887 to 1889. It must be accepted as but a brief history of an industry long identified with Baltimore.

Thanks are due the Librarian of the Maryland Historical Society and Mr. B. R. Sheriff for favors in lending rare and valuable old City directories; also to the many citizens who kindly aided and assisted in the search for needed information.

The Author. (from the Preface)
