Visiting another world

In July I did a story for the magazine, one of my last ones as an intern, and it was such a great experience. I visited a hat maker - he's 50 years old but makes hats like they did way before he was born. He uses old machines, and walking through the doors to his place beneath the roof in one of the beautiful old buildings in Nørrebro was like crossing the threshold to an old world. There were hats from top to bottom, and the old machines were amazingly old and full of stories. He was a good story-teller, too. Read it yourself in Ud & Se's October issue that hits the stands tomorrow.
 These molds are only 20 or so years old, but the varnish used to stiffen the hats makes them look much older.
 Just look at this!
