Not a single hatless person there.  It was still very much the fashion when I was a child.  No one went out without a hat.

Elvis had a lot of influence. It became uncool to wear headgear even in freezing weather. Russia held out for years but has now succumbed.

Notice how all the men and many boys are also wearing waistcoats. At least they are coming back into fashion.
