    Nice photo Keith. For many years I played guitar in a blues band. There was a real hat shoppe here in Philly on South Street. It was called Deitz Hats. The old mad died and a younger man took it over but they folded a while ago. I used to take the guys there and buy them a hat for performing. I miss the hat shoppe, I miss the hats and I miss the band. Thanks for the memories…..

    • Thanks Don! This hat Shop has been there for as long as I can remember. Part of the old neighborhood near the Empire State Building and Penn Station. A holdout. Once it’s gone, it’ll be one of the last shops I used to walk by when I worked in Camera Barn in the late 70s, early 80s. Cousins of mine had a haberdashery near there as well.

      Funny, I still play guitar, getting back into it too. Calms me down. I had a blues band for many years through my teens and 20s! Drugs were way too prevalent then. Too many friends died despite the good times.
