Louise Moran Fashions, ca 1930



This beautiful matching hat & coat is made of velvet and is edged with fur.  It belonged to the very fashionable Louise Moran, youngest child and only daughter of James and Virginia Moran.  It was packed away in a cedar chest with other pieces of Moran clothing including some Trousseau pieces that belonged to Virginia Moran and a baseball uniform belonging to Louise's brother, Nathan "Bub" Moran.  Although Moran Place was packed to the gills with "treasures" I believe the items in that chest may have been some of the most treasured items of all.

Here is Louise at the fair wearing another lovely hat.
