Celebrating one year on WordPress with this fine group


“The Tilted Hats”. RPPC. Private Collection.

The first person who attracted my attention was the gent in the bowler, I love the way he tilted his head in the opposite direction of the hat. And then I noticed his friends; the charming one next to him tilting his head too, and the others with the hat sideways or to the back.

I don’t think I have a favorite in this group; they all took a good picture. There must have been a joke or two about how the camera made the tough looking middle one quite blurry, and I think his nose was broken too.

And the front left nature boy with his neck scarf, undone collar and cane reminiscent of a branch. The teen to the front right looks like he was the younger brother of the one standing left.

All in all, a fine Edwardian group who must have made quite an impression! And with them goes one year of blogging on WordPress with 416 posts!

Leo Hahn with Miss Baker and Miss K. RPPC. Private Collection.

Leo with two lady friends IDed on the back. This photo was taken on the 9th or March 1910.

The dark dresses busily contrast so well with the young man’s sober suit. Miss Baker’s wearing a beautifully embroidered dress with a matching filigree necklace, and Miss K is wearing a square flap collar dress that seems to be sheer by the neck. Oh, and the big frou-frou hats with the fluffy feathers, a proper lady’s outfit isn’t complete without one of those!

I wonder if these women were dressed in mourning.

Leonard Hahn was from Montgomery, Kansas and was 25 years old when this photo was taken.
