Peachbloom felt hat decorated with leaves
Milliner Lindsay Kennett opened a salon in affluent Parnell in 1962. He operated it in tandem with his wholesale business. After five years, he shut up shop. "Making bespoke hats for women of means was an enjoyable experience," he says. But my workload became unmanageable. The salon had to go." This hat belonged to Margaret Philip (nee Veitch) who immigrated to New Zealand in 1954.
