Interesting that the bulk of hats are caps. Doesn't the guy with the long neck, trilby and moustache look like Neville Chamberlain? Go up on the right hand side from the post 344. I don'have a hatch sign and he is quite obvious.

I'm still wondering about the 'hats on' pic in #330 and the same group 'hats off' pic in #341, even the young lad has taken off his hat. Did someone say to them "now gentlemen, we need a photo with your hats off" ?I've been wondering why people stopped wearing hats. Looks like they were still a regular part of dress up to the 1930s and into the 40s. But by the 1950s/60s less people were wearing them.
In the 40s/50s/60s women wore headscarves, probably because they were easier to wear. But can't explain what happened to men going hatless. Was it a result of having to wear a military uniform hat in the forces? Viv.
