Odd old hat

Thursday, May 17, 2012

I'm a bit pressed for time to write a post, so I'll just post this old picture of an odd hat. What its about I have no idea. If you have an ideas post them in the comments. I swiped it from Black and WTF.

Off hand, I'd say it was one of the first personal listening devices.

The horn in front was probably the speaker- because back then it wasn't cool to force people a hundred feet away to hear your noise (also the volume only goes to 8).

Then you have the antennas and tuner on top.

I figured it for a time machine. There's a dial on the side of it to select the date, some wires and what-not to create a worm hole.

I also assume he is checking the date on the newspaper to make sure his is where, er... when... he wants to be.

The only thing I can't figure is the miniature saxophone on the front of the hat.
