Memories view of far-off distant days: ‘Errz-Ra feeshel Hats, Scarves and Rosettes’

‘Errz-Ra feeshel Hats, Scarves and Rosettes’...Nowadays it’s quite common to see on street corners on the way to game the stalls selling hats, scarves and badges. Whether it is out the back of a van or pinned on to a fence panel, some of them really are good quality and you can tell they could have been massed produced in a factory somewhere.

Back in the day when communication wasn’t as it was now with computers, tablets or mobile phones, it was down to the man in the street to come up with his own idea at making a few shillings out of the supporters using whatever materials he had at hand.

These invariably resulted in home-made rosettes which proved very popular due to price and the fact that they were forever changing.

Here are a few from over the years, pretty basic, but they did the job.
