Lillian Fowler knows the hat looks ridiculous. But defies you to say one word about it.
(I bought this cabinet card at an antique shop last week just because I loved the hat and the woman's expression. Someone had penciled "Lillian Fowler" on the back. I looked up the photographer, Dennis B. Nye, and learned that he operated a studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota between 1884 and 1904. He then moved to South Dakota.)
