Opening Days are Happy Days

Opening days are indeed always happy days, but in this case, we speak not of baseball but of the opening of spring hat season.  If you were lucky enough to be in Skidmore, Missouri on this day in 1914, you, too, could have witnessed the exhibition of spring hats.  From the Skidmore New Era, March 19, 1914, page 9:

Spring Opening.  Mrs. Hutt announces the exhibition of spring hats, March 20, 21.  "Opening Days are Always Happy Days"  Mrs. Emma Hutt.

Exhibition of spring hats by Mrs. Emma Hutt in Skidmore, Missouri, 1914.
