The Golden Straw
The Golden Straw was a large, broad-brimmed hat presented to Emily Pearson by her long-time friend and employer Mabel Arkwright, millinew and modiste. And before long it was to her employer that Emmily owed the gift of the business itself, for Mabel was in poor health and had come to rely more and more on Emily before her untimely death in 1880.
