Claudia’s Hat Shop in Lowell, Arizona

Such interesting colors!  Tomorrow I will post a close up of some of the hats that are not visible from this window scene.

 

Perhaps you will recall the photos I posted of the old cars

and Indian Motocycle (sic)

from the tiny area of Lowell that is near Bisbee, Arizona.

 

Here is a bit of history about Lowell.

I didn’t find much on the net about Lowell, but here is one photo.

taken by someone else just three months before I took mine.  This shot shows the lovely entry door.

It appears that the window dressing has changed, so I’m wondering if the hat store is an actual going concern.  I took it to be just an attractant for tourists to photograph in the area, but maybe not.  Interesting.

I don’t recall seeing anyone else on the streets that day, and there are no venues to seek tourist dollars, not even a lemonade stand.  The only thing I saw was a very inconspicuous collection kettle sitting in the back of a pick-up truck.  By the time it had sunk into my brain what I had seen, we had walked quite far down the road. Next time, I will flutter a few bills into the pot.  They deserve some support for providing such a great open-air museum of days gone by.  It was a joyous day with good friends that we will long remember.
