Easter Bonnet's and Easter Parades....

The "Easter bonnet" was fixed in popular culture by Irving Berlin, whose frame of reference was the Easter parade in NYC, a festive walk about that made it's way down Fifth Avenue from St. Patricks Cathedral. This photo was taken in 1900. The parade dates back to the mid 1800's.

People come from around the world to participate in the Easter parade. Outfits range from outrageous to elegant.

I think this is one of the funniest ones that I have seen and how original!

At the depths of the Great Depression a new hat at Easter, or a refurbished old one, was a simple luxury!
