The 1964-1965 New York World's Fair

Arlington Hats

Hats of all kinds – the largest, smallest, funniest, oldest and the most unusual hats gathered by Junior Chambers of Commerce and other organizations in contests across the country – are displayed in a museum sponsored by the Fair’s official hatter, the Arlington Hat Company. Eight similar Arlington “Hat-a-rama” concessions located throughout the grounds sell a variety of souvenir hats priced from $1.00 to $5.00. They also carry the official World’s Fair balloons.

One of the many Arlington Hat stands can be seen here near the Kodak Pavilion. Many Fair guests enjoyed their hats with long colorful feathers bought at one of these stands. (CD #10 Set 150 #127)
