City Hatters


I love this store, it was nice to observe its unchanged state today...something of a local institution that I walked by everyday on the way to art school.

A renowned and historic Melbourne institution, City Hatters has survived the test of time and the vagaries of fashions and trends for almost a century. It has survived depressions, recessions, good times, bad times, hat times and hatless times

I adore your blog - many of your posts seem a world away from mine here in central London, and for that reason alone it's a real tonic. Thanks, Stef

the akubra hat made in Kempsey since 1974. I think the factory kept half the town alive..my gran used to love telling me how her first kiss was with the boy from the neighbouring farm..who later became Slim Dusty.
