  1. Hi there, I'm a milliner from Wales, UK. I am writing a blog piece on Jack McConnell - I have just purchased one of his wonderful hats. Would it be ok to use some of your pictures of Jack McConnell hats to illustrate it. I will of course credit and link back. Look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes, Catherine Povey
