Seminar: The straw hat trade in St Albans c.1800 to 1940
February 20, 2020 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM at SAHAAS Library, Sandridge Gate Business Centre, Ronsons Way, St Albans, AL4 9XR
Speakers: Anne Wares and Jon Mein
What little has been published about the local trade can be unreliable. The key aim of our project is to go back to source material and reconstruct the story of plaiting and hat making in the town. At the seminar we will set out the chronology for the development of the trade in St Albans, consider who the business leaders were and identify their many factories and workshops.
