    my brain is telling me this is a drawing/painting. not a photo. as for the hats....it's not the hat that makes the man,it's the man that makes the hat work...or not. as for me Ive never been able to wear hats. I sometimes see friends that always wear hats and seeing them without a hat...hmm you look familiar, do I know you? one of our 6 kids is a hat wearer....cowboy hats.and he makes them work well.

    I found that one via Shorpy.com. They tend to touch up the photos they find, and it gives some of them that over-realistic look that can seem unusual for a 100-year-old photo. Here's a good example.
