Roll-brimmed straw with long veil

Clifton Firth photographed this hat for the Auckland department store Milne & Choyce, not long after he and his wife Patricia opened a commercial photography studio in 1938. Much of his commercial work was producing seasonal photography for Milne & Choyce, which was located on Queen Street directly opposite his studio.
