Just thought I'd start this post with a photo of my Nan (far right) with her sister and a friend. The photo was taken around 1920 and I just wish I had a bathing cap like one of those!
The giveaway draw date has arrived and I have to say, with just fourteen names to go in the hat, you were all in with a jolly good chance of being drawn.
We used a genuine vintage top hat (modelled here by dear daughter) which I purchased from an antiques fair at Alexandra Palace about thirty years ago. This hat has been on stage as the hat of the Artful Dodger and I think I'm right in saying has also been part of a vampire costume.
I don't know how old the hat is, but it came from Jermyn Street which runs behind Fortnum and Mason in Piccadilly, London and is small enough to have belonged to a child of about ten.
Anyway, dear daughter had the honour of picking out a name from the hat (she did confess to feeling a bit nervous at the responsibility).
And the winner is..........
Congratulations Ted and Bunny! The V&A souvenirs will be winging their way to you asap if you would be so kind as to email your address.
