Notice the cops walking around with billy club in hand, ready to beat people in the head instantly?

Just like in all the old Laurel & Hardy movies.

That film is believed to have been filmed in 1905.
The San Fran earthquake was in 1906.

I've seen that film before.

Funny how everyone used to wear hats. I wonder when that became a non-requiremetn for getting dressed.

One day in the cop shop in the 1970's I worked the counter and dealt with a young rookie cop that was playing the part to the hilt.

He had a fedora and was dressed in an old suit and overcoat and gloves, all straight out of a 1950's NYC cop movie.

I had a hard time keeping a straight face.

This film, originally thought to be from 1905, until David Kiehn, with the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum, figured out exactly when it was shot. From New York trade papers announcing the film showing to the wet streets from recent heavy rainfall & shadows indicating time of year & actual weather and conditions on historical record, even when the cars were registered (he even knows who owned them and when the plates were issued!).
It was filmed only four days before the quake and shipped by train to NY for processing.

Post WWII, most people spend very little time outside because they travel in automobiles. If people today spent as much time out in the weather as those folks in the 1905 film, then everyone would start wearing hats.

Longer film from a few days before the earthquake

NYC 1928
1) The taxi is driven by Harold Lloyd (comedian) and his second passenger is Babe Ruth.
2) This is not all in New York City. Some of the taxi shots, and all of the bus sequence, is in Los Angeles, where most movies were (and still are) made.
3) Obviously this is all overdone for comic effect, but actual city traffic then WAS dangerous and not as controlled. People really did cross the street wherever they felt like it, and there were few stop signs or traffic lights.

I'll bet that was a good percentage of all the cars that existed in California in 1906.

There weren't. If you watch there are cars that drive in and out of the shot several times (one appears at about 0:55, then again @ 3:13). Apparently they were hired to do so in order to make San Fran appear more modern and progressive than it really was.

Not just hats but men used to wear a shirt with a collar and a tie. Men used to not wear any kind of headwear indoors either, like the ought.

A baseball cap isn't a real hat by the way. Much the same as a tennis shirt (otherwise known as a polo) isn't a dress shirt. At least they have a collar....


Today's men might as well be going out in their undergarments. Most of the time they really are showing....

I remember the days when I was a tool that wore rock and roll t-shirts (or print shirts in general. I never wore Ed hardy, but those are even more as douche worthy) and jeans or cargo jorts every day, rarely shaved, and was "an cool rebel against society" What a terrible time in my life.

Business casual is a minimum.
