  • Short Summary

    Great Joe Noble cartoon illustrating his ideas for hats of the future.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Loonie Lids. A Fashion Forecast for 1950 by our Captive Cartoonist - Joe Noble".

    Various cartoon drawings of early hat designs. The cartoon shows how the designs change through time.

    Intertitle reads: "Our Cartoonist, normally quite harmless, foretells some 'useful' fashions of the future".

    Various nice cartoons showing future possibilities in hat design - e.g. a parcel carrying hat for the hen pecked husband, a Brazier Bowler for the man who is always cold, a combined hat and parachute. There are several other equally madcap designs.

    N.B. Item found in Unidentified Gazettes reel.
