    Making wood frame boats. Interesting that everyone is wearing a hat, no baseball caps.

    It's really cool to see these old pictures, when I was little I remember all of my older relations,uncle, cousin, Dad and grandfather whore hats also clear in to the mid fifties, every man seem to wear a hat! These old wooden freighters were part of the first world war effort, and many didn't get used at all. Many were anchored in the Sound in Washing State , which become known as "Wilson's Wood Row"!

    "Dad and grandfather whore hats also clear in to the mid fifties, every man seem to wear a hat! "

    Current thinking is that the widespread advent of driving your own car is what killed off the custom of men wearing hats.

    (also answers the question of why you didn't see any ball caps: caps where a boys headgear, not a man's)

    The hat V cap thing is ,in my opinion, a marketing & profit thing. After a generation of skin cancers to the ears & back of neck etc then there will be a push for sombreros and wide brim hats: not just "slip, slop, slap" as we have here.

    I didn't wear hats when younger as i was a "long haired leaping loon" or whatever but even though, later in life, I wore a helmet with muffs while brushcutting, chainsawing, mowing, landscaping, & a hat while gardening etc I still managed to get skin cancer to the top of my ear. Dr said we will have to monitor that one and the one on my cheek so I applied radium weed and beside the cheek's severe pain the cancers scabbed up and dropped off. I told Dr & he said there was research into that euphorbia. Drug companies will charge a bomb for the stuff they concoct.

    My elderly friend hates the pain of needles and the cutting out of the cancers on her face( and she has had quite a few-one time she looked like a "little Ausie Bleeder" with all the tiny round bandaids on her face. She decided to get me to apply some sap but with no responsibility on me. Most have gone within a fortnight. One however has scabbed twice and still coming out so had a third application this week: she claims the roots of it must have been very deep and any surgery would have made a mess of her face.

    Don't try at home without medical advice & the correct plant.

    Cheers

    Yeah as a desert dweller myself, I've long been a fan of wide brimmed hats, or at least one like this : https://usa.solbari.com/collections/...-sun-hat-upf50

    That one at least is car-seat-with-headrest friendly.

    That is similar to the Arafat Hat I used to wear but I dont wear one of any kind while driving: I like to have best vision and full attention possible. I get a bit annoyed when my partner asks "is there anything behind?" I generally respond "you are the driver so check it out" but I look anyway as she has reversed into my car; LOL.

    In old days back in 60s with no headreasts & through to 80s with head restraints, one always avoided an old guy in a hat who was driving = unpredictable! more laughs but true.

    Love the dirt floor, don't need to worry about sweeping. How is that drill press powered?
