Mosley's Millinery & Lacey Notions

An advertisement in the Earlville Leader in the year 1900 said this about M. J. Mosley's millinery establishment:"They have a nice line of fall millinery school hats and caps." A Millinery would make and sell hats; as shown in this photo that is currently on display in the museum. Most millineries also carried hair goods, as well as fabrics, ostrich feathers, or other items that a fashionable lady would be looking for.
