Production role
Credit line
This bright silk cap was made by W J Emmerton, which from the 1940s was a clothing manufacturer in Hawera. It’s likely this cap was worn for races at the nearby Egmont Racing Club. The cap has the name G Bettle written inside its interior, and although this may be the name of the jockey who wore the cap, we don’t know for certain.
