Solar Topees and Light-Coloured Umbrellas
( words)‘Among the articles of REAL use are helmets, shady or other hats, with pugarees of muslin to protect the head and neck from the sun; also light-coloured umbrellas strong enough to be used as walking-sticks. Some difference of opinion exists as to the form of head covering. Some think helmets or solar topees indispensable, but this is not accepted universally, and ladies do not greatly favour them, as they are difficult to fit and uncomfortable to wear. Many are satisfied with good wide awakes or ‘Terai’ hats, and not a few think by far the best is a broad-brimmed sailor hat from Andres in Bond Street. All ladies should be provided with gossamer veils of brown, blue or green, which are an immense comfort and great protection against sand, dust or glare.’ P.S.: Briton Thomas Cook was the first to realise the enormous potential of mass-tourism, organizing journeys and inventing the travel voucher.
