"Berlin - Gubener Hutfabrik (Hat Factory), Actiengesellschaft (Public or Private Company) vorm. A. Cohn, Abteilung (Division) Berthold Lissner Guben" from the Gotisches Haus (Gothic House) Bad Homburg, Germany hat collection. This shows wool soft and stiff hat production. There are some really great photos. Berlin - Gubener Hutfabrik was a very large hat company that produced both wool and fur stiff and soft felt hats. Guben was the major hat production (10+ factories) in Germany up to WWII. My guess is this booklet is from around WWI maybe a bit later.
