TOO MANY HATS.
There’s two fashion items we can talk about in this picture. First and obvious: The hats. As you can see, almost every man in the occidental world wore a hat in 1939. And of course, the cars, that weren’t that popular at that time, allowing people to walk in the streets freely.
People in Paris, 1924, avoiding the flood waters by walking along a series of chairs set up along a footpath. We are not sure if it’s water or lava, because it looks like the solution is a little bit more dangerous than the actual problem.
