A hundred years ago and that's when this picture was taken, in 1912 men didn't leave home without a hat. Boys wore caps. This is a socialist political rally in Union Square in Manhattan. There may be a bare head or two in this crowd, but I think those heads are women's.

Men without hats?
As someone who’s last name translates to hat maker. I love hats.
I thought it was kennedy who changed things as the first president to go out in public without a hat?
The safety dance by Men without hats. (they’re no friends of mine)
What a wonderful trip back in time ... thank you.
Fewer hats means more skin cancer. I wonder if any experts have made that connection.
I for one have always been glad to live in a time when headgear is worn only by utilitarian necessity or personal expressive choice.
Hat are cool and women used to wear hats that required a hat pin which could come in handy as a tool of improvised self defense.
when your budget is $300, there’s only so much you can do
re-airing the old b-flicks with voice over was pure genius
“A hat should be taken off when you greet a lady and left off for the rest of your life. Nothing looks more stupid than a hat.”
P. J. O’Rourke
See the partial reveal of the placard on the upper left hand side of the photo?
Much has changed since then but the agitate now in its present day is in its pre riot stages, as Obamas community organization Acorn etc sub rosa
creates the emotion to bring it about. What we see now is merely the tip of the riot iceberg.
The Obama movements supposition is that Americans are domestic cowards, and can be made fearful and shaped like a herd of docile cows. Is that supposition now true? So far it has proven true according to the Alinsky plan. The Supreme Court stands in Obamas way, and he is prepared to go against any ruling they make on the basis of “ Those Judges were not elected.”
We are in for a very rough ride.Obama knows full well the Obamacare Health Bill mandates are unconstitutional. So does the court. I believe a power struggle is now happening behind the scenes between the executive and judical branches of gvernment. The stupified Congress looks on in horror , at a time when they should be censuring the illegitimate presidents comments publicly and legislatively, and convening a military committee to secure the nation and the safety of the Supreme Court, and the independence of the States.
The executive branch of government is now a loose cannon on the deck of the ship of state.Its time for Congress to act
to tie it down.
BINGO! In 1960 my Dad, uncles, and friends fathers had hats. In 1961 only one bald uncle still wore one. Mom said it was a fad (going hatless), but that was the end. Hat's made you look old and since JFK, every middle aged man wanted to look young.
They'd get you strip searched by the TSA today.......LOL!
My God, the same leftist crap still goes on in that park to this day. Now the OWS terrorists, endorsed by Despot Mike Bloomberg, are camped out there. And if it isn't them, then it's always some other leftist organization, or should say disorganization whining and complaining. "Waaaah! We want free money! Waaah! Work sucks! Waaah! I wanna sit on my ass alll day and be supported by somebody else like a little baby! Waaaah!" I always throw something at them when I walk by there.
“Ike” isn’t a word, it’s a name.
I’ve been wearing hats for about 40 years. Back then they were chiefly of the fishing hat or ball cap variety. I did wear a western hat to my senior photograph session in HS. They wouldn’t let me wear it for the photo but I did wear the colonel tie. Today I have 50 or more hats/caps in straw and felt and woven fabric. I’ve worn one to each of the Free Republic gatherings in DC. (1998 March for Justice, 2001 Inaugural Ball, the event a couple of years ago in Arlington VA)
I love hats. Fedoras and Trilbys especially. I also like caps. I still have my dad’s old driving cap somewhere. I don’t do the “newsboy cap”, though. I like the look, but in my area it seems to be a popular garment of choice for the OWS/granola/fleabag types.
When I was a child, remembering only back to early 50s with my parents, both men and women wore hats.
Today, I never go out without a hat, but I am bald ;)
