Three generations of Bowlers topped by their bowler hats. Thomas William Bowler, 85, is the direct descendant of the Bowler hat family shows off the 1880 vintage bowler, his son Leslie Harold Bowler, wearing the 1890 bowler, and grandson John Leslie Bowler wears the 1950 version. The occasion was to mark the 100th anniversary of the Bowler which produces 60,000 hats per year, only few of which are exported making it a very British tradition.
