Postcard showing people with Edwardian Hats c1910

The theme for this week's Sepia Saturday blog is 'hats', so I thought I'd show this postcard from my collection. It has a Tooting postmark (South London). I have no idea who the people are, where they are or what they are doing. I think they may be by a river, waiting for a boat to take them somewhere. There are boxes stacked up next to them, at least one of them containing vintage wine. A typical view of Edwardian hats is on display. From left, a flat cap, a boater and a homburg. The ladies sport the elaborate hats of the era. Click the postcard to enlarge.

For more old pictures visit the Sepia Saturday blog.

  1. This must be a Sepia Saturday record, five hats in a row!
    It seems like there are a lot of bottles on display so I am wondering how the pick-nick was.
    A picture with a story. But what?

  2. The picture really sparks the imagination. What brought these people together in this place at this moment? They all look so refined. If I were a time-traveler, I'd want to visit that time.

  3. Would love to know the story behind this picture. Looks like they were in for a fun picnic. Besides the wine, the boxes on the ground appear to be labeled nuts and fruit.

  4. Hello, Howard. Hopping through. I've seen a lot of men's hats so far on this Sepia Saturday tour, but I must say that the homburg has to be the most stylish and elegant of them all. Great photo.

  5. I wonder what a bottle of 1900 extra sec would cost today. I like the way the woman is looking at the man in the middle.

  11. A perfect fit, Howard! Quite an impromptu photo to catch the man on left in mid-lite of his pipe and the women between words.

    The box of Sec wine, which absurdly could be either a sweet champagne or a dry white, reminded me of a superb book I read this year: "The Lost History of 1914 " by Jack Beatty. The author has a section about wine habits, as before the Great War, Britain imported mostly Red wines from France and mostly White wines from Germany. The conflict's forced embargoes changed the demand, so that France had a new market for its White wines which were not then popular.

  13. A flat hat, a boater and a Homburg an eclectic selection without the ladies finery. A few of the hats would be a bit askew if they shift all that booze.
