boaters


They look a bit too old to be school boys with boaters as part of their school uniform, perhaps they could be 'prefects'. On the other hand if the boaters suggest a 'day trip', then they don't look to be enjoying it very much.

  1. Of course before I saw this very cool photo I thought boating!

  3. Wonderful picture! Of course, when this was taken, all men wore boaters in spring and summer. Why do they look so downtrodden? Not enough young ladies to admire their snappy suits and dashing boaters?

    1. Now I'm sure I have a photo of young men in boaters, with young ladies, who look much happier. Now to find it . . . .

  4. "Boaters" that's a new one for me. I assume it's the style of hat they're wearing.

    1. Yes, it's the hat, described by the Oxford dictionary as,
      "A flat-topped hardened straw hat with a brim.
      [so named because originally worn while boating]"

      I couldn't describe it better myself ;)
