Here are pictures of a Lital hat and a print ad for the company. This was my great-grandfather's company. They owned a hat factory and four stores until the business was taken by the Nazis in 1938. I would appreciate any information people may have about Lital.

Here is a picture of the the Lital shop in Vienna, Austria. My grandfather is the gentleman on right hand side. The picture appears to be blurry. I need to resize it and will repost if someone would like to see it better.

Thank you posting the photos and information! It's interesting that the hat uses Vienna vs. Wien which probably means it was made for the US market. Is there a paper label behind the sweatband? It would behind the sweatband at the rear or sides (see example below). If there is a paper label could you please take a photo of it and post it here? Do you know if the business was started again in America? I will be on the look out for Lital hats and documentation.
