A different family..and a slightly different summer scene.
The men seem very relaxed. The women not so much. The straw hat or “boaters” as they were often called were very popular in the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s. They were worn by men on the weekend..the “boaters” may have been worn boating or just on a relaxing weekend in the country. Boaters were made of woven straw and had a hat ribbon around them ( this was called a Nostro.) We can thank the Italians for these hats, their Gondoliers originally wore them.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
