New Women’s Hats, 1875.

Hoola Luahine—In these recent past days, women have been seen wearing tilted to the side, high-crowned hats made with skill, and when looking at this, it is becoming to the youth and to the elderly as well; and for this reason, this type of hat is called, a “hoola luahine [reviving old lady].” We are appreciative of this endeavor; it decreases the money spent on foreign hats.
