  1. I'm not sure what I would have noticed about the picture if the post title hadn't directed my attention. But I'm glad that you got me to focus on the hats. Hats must have been really popular back then. What an amazing variety!

    1. Hats likely were a necessity, used to keep warm.

  2. The hats, the faces - great photo. and is that man carrying a hat box?

    1. I initially thought he was carrying a cake but you may be right. He is not handling the box delicately enough for it to be a cake.
