    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.
