to 1945 and this view of King Christian X and Queen Alexandrine of Denmark at the end of WWII. Despite 75 years passing from the time this photo was taken, the Danish Queen’s sidesweeping veiled hat with floral trim could fit in easily today.

Furs and flowers to celebrate the end of WWII! What’s not to like? Wish it was in color.
Would love to have seen this in color! It looks amazing in black and white. Even more so in color, I am sure.
Not sure that what looks like a light flower trimmed hat goes with those furs; but then they wore furs everywhere and with everything in those times!
Is this the oldest sidesweeping hat photo there is? Could this be the first hat in this style?
Ha! And here I was thinking that a pretty sideswept brim with floral adornment was a modern confection. Amazing!
