I guess the world was a more trusting place in 1913 judging by the fact the floor safe behind the guy on the left is surrounded by glass windows.

In those days they didn't have four wheel drive trucks to hook onto a safe and drag it out the door.

That must be an engine block on the floor in the left side of the photo.

Does anyone know the history of why they called that a "pork pie" hat? The reason I ask is that the first owner of my Delivery Car was a Pork Pie Baker. I know what a pork pie was but not sure how or why the hat came to be named that.

According to Wikipedia (gasp), the hat supposedly bears some resemblance to a traditional pork pie, mainly I suppose the rolled rim around the top of the hat.

Here are a couple of pictures:

Pork pie: pork_pie
