Woman's bonnet. White cotton with narrow blue stripes. Deep brim is stiffened with cardboard inserts. Bonnet has a drawstring and ties at the back of the neck; ties at top to gather the crown; and ties under the chin. The chin ties are a knit fabric and appear to be later replacements. This is a practical, everyday work bonnet.
