Thanks! It has been very hard not to share them. The place was incredible. The steam presses for hats, sewing hats by hand...it was like stepping back in time. I got very lucky that day. The president of the company (the man pictures in image three actually) was quite the 'cool cat' type. I now hope he is open to releasing me from the agreement...

This place was AMAZING inside and I was sad to hear it was moving! I had the opportunity to tour and photograph it last summer while it was still in operation. I signed an agreement at that time not to release the images due to them not wanting trade secrets released. I am currently working to have this lifted. If I do, I will post!
