    Back then you didn't go out in public
    without a hat.
    Two chaps without hats look frustrated!

    It appears that 30s newsboy caps were
    roomier on top and the brim extended
    more.

    I found one on ebay, but most that are
    offered the brims are not promiment.
    But they do exist, one has to shop around.

    It's the prominent brim that I like. The newer caps that bring the top down to the front of the brim look like a bicycle seat to me...

    That 1850s-1860s cap is attractive to my eye as well.

    The prominent brim is also what I like
    as well.
    Here's some that come close to 30s style.

    I like the look of the soft felt in these hats.

    Looks like some nice felt here, too.

  17. I have a ggg-grandfather who left his family behind & headed for the goldfields of California in 1849, intending to send for them when he struck it rich. He died of disease as many miners did, before that happened. Whenever I see pics of such miners my curiosity is always peaked as to what he might have looked like; what he might have gone thru.
