vintage caps

Discussion in 'Hats' started by Metatron, Aug 16, 2014.

  1. Please post photos of vintage caps, either your own, or as worn by people back in the day.
    We have the cap faction, yes, but it is a huge thread which incorporates modern, vintage and repro caps, and I think it will be useful to have a neat resource for just the vintage examples, for inspiration both to wearers and makers.

    I will start with some of my favorites:

    On a tennis court in germany, 1930s (my scan from an album I found on the fleamarket)


    PS: To make this thread better for research than the big cap faction thread I would suggest to add captions with the place, date, name of photographer (if known, of course)

    That's a good idea, FFF, I will do that as often as I have the info. But I have many pics that I have downloaded over time, that I forget where I found them. But I will provide the information if I can.

    I can't remember where I found this on the Net. When I see cool historic pics, I download them to a folder on my desktop. As the writing on the pic says, it was taken in 1925.
