  • Description

    An expert from "Maison Lewis" demonstrates how easily a simple shape may be transformed into many charming hats.

    First the "Napoleon" creation. C/U of a woman worker folding back the brim of a hat and fixing a feather trim to the front of the hat. M/S of the milliner putting the hat on to a model who then poses for the camera. She turns to show the hat from different sides. C/U of a hat being stitched. The brim is turned up in three places. C/U of the hat being modelled - it has a very large bow on the side. Again the head is turned to show all around the hat. A hat with an ostrich feather trim is made before our eyes as the milliner pins a large feather boa affair onto the crown of a hat. The model turns her head for the camera.

    Intertitle reads: "And doubtless other possibilities will suggest themselves to our lady patrons."

    Note: some crazy looking hats!

Animals are often the forgotten army of World War I. They displayed unwavering courage even when exposed to extreme conditions. British Pathé pay tribute to these forgotten warriors.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
