Well it’s September 15. The end of straw hat season. In the Scranton Times 100 years ago, an article and a cartoon ran about the end of the season.
In the article below men were reminded that even through the city of Scranton was experiencing a heat wave “it would be violation of all aesthetic tastes and ideals for men to leave the house wearing a straw hat.”
Times’ cartoonist Jim Walsh drew up some ideas for what men could do with their straw hats now that straw hat season is over.
