There’s a dude near the top right, a little below the checkered floor, without a hat
It’s really weird how the custom of never going out without a hat has mostly disappeared. Even a couple of generations ago it was the done thing. I had several elderly aunts and they wouldn’t go anywhere without some sort of head covering. I know the Queen is never seen in public without her titfer. * Cockney rhyming slang: tit for tat = hat.
I count at least three people who are not wearing hats.
It’s so odd that hats went completely out of style. So…. they were worn for generations but were hats just a fad?
I counted 7 or 8 without hats plus a few possibles. One guy even has a large bald spot.
One, top right, in front of the checkered tile flooring. Still amazing, his was probably in his hand lol
see the coats they are also in – probablky not too warm.
few people taking cabs so you walk through the weather
so hats … make sense
need to find a contemporary shot today and it might be much the same
