In this series you get 18 unique images of late Victorian era women wearing hats with feathery plumage. This trend came to an end after two women instigated a development of tea parties urging their friends to stop wearing these hats.
“The watershed moment arrived in 1913, when the Weeks-McLean Law, sponsored by Massachusetts Representative John Weeks and Connecticut Senator George McLean, effectively ended the plume trade.”

I can’t pretend to like the hats with birds on, but some are lovely and the ladies have with lovely faces.
