Berets from P.J. de Haan

This ad I stole from the blog of Pieter, my Bordeaux-bereted good friend from the Netherlands. It was Pieter's grandmother who ran a hat shop in the Minrebroederstraat in Utrecht. The ad is from 1910 and reads: "The best place for silk hats, fantasy hats, straw hats, sports caps and berets. Good and cheap".

  1. Now I see that picture back. Yes I published it on my blog, and I like hats and even much more barets, and I know that postcard very well, with my late aunt and uncle before the shop, but I never paid attention to the text: indeed berets is written in capitals. Amazing!
