I wonder if they ever wore hats like that for anything other than posing for pictures. They must have been very impracticable : always falling off.
You could hide a live chicken under one of those hats. I find this costume very interesting. If you hadn't specified that they were Welsh ladies, I never would have been able to guess.
I like these Welsh Lady postcards, but it is somewhat frightening that they are off camera ringing the necks of fowl. Those hats seem to have some sort of an Inca style to them when you think about it.
lol!!!too funny!!i would never have guessed these were welsh ladies, given their accoutrement...:)~HUGZ
