Photo Number 688

This was a photo that was in the original box of photos that I bought almost 2 years ago from the Antique Shop in Park Rapids Minnesota.

Man with weird hat

A gentleman with a striped hat that looks like a beanie. He looks a bit old to be in any kind of College initiation..or freshman week.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)


An update on Photo Number 659

Wm Strehlows family has all the photos of him that they wish to have.


  1. He does look a little old for an initiation. That is an awfully heavy looking vest too. Odd combination isn't it?

  2. Hmmm... Looks sort of like a yarmulke or skull cap to me...

  3. Maybe both the vest and the hat are worn to honor the person that made them for him even if they don't quite go together, fit perfectly or match his taste? Handmade presents are sometimes documented in photos and then gently put in the back of the closet, no?
