This cheered me up, Britain used to wear hats.
Now its a warning sign if somebody drives wearing a hat because they are either
a) Flat Hat/Trilby = circa 103 and probably driving a Maestro
b) Baseball cap (possibly on backwards) = Chav/Scally or TWOCer
c) Flat hat with black/white pattern = Policeman
great photo, notice the lack of shoving too :
I used to wear a trilby on occasion when going out - but now I just don’t go out
Main reason for people not wearing hats these days is the invention of the automobile… People used to do a lot of walking… nowadays people tend to walk from home to car, drive to work, walk from car to the office. no need for hats even if it’s raining.
