Why do all those ladies have slop buckets on their heads?

Same reason fat girls wear spandex "skinny jeans" these days Mike. It's called "fashion". ( I'll take the "slop buckets" )

The "cloche" style hat was the most popular, though there were many others during the period. The French word "cloche" comes from the glass domes used in the garden, or to protect valuable objects. The dress is much nicer than yoga pants. Coco Channel being responsible for some nice 1920's style

Before the 1980's Bathurst and St. Clair was the garment factory district

Mike - You can say what you want about the various "styles" of the past, and, call me "old fashioned" if you want, but nowadays, and for the past several years, some of these young girls today seem to think it's "stylish" to wear worn out looking and faded Levi's with ragged and frizzy wear holes in the knees and thighs. Who the heck starts that dumb stuff anyway??? A young girl wearing Levi's like that in the days of those "slop bucket" hats would be pitied and brought in and fed as a "homeless" and poor person!

When you are downloading photos from the Toronto Archives, you should be able to save them in a much larger size. If they are over 250KB, then you can reduce them accordingly.

Also, you can copy and paste the full description and give credit where it is due:

Title: T.T.C. reconstructed cars on Bathurst route
Date(s) of creation of record(s): July 18, 1923
Physical description of record(s): 1 photonegative : b&w, glass ; 9 x 11 cm

I love the hat styles of that era. Most women's hats of the 1920s highlight a pretty face nicely, and only require a few minutes of hair preparation to be ready to go out. (Unlike some today that spend hours on their hair and wear ratty clothes.)

Erik, I didn't get the photo from the Toronto Archives nor did I have any info on it.

I apologize to any I may have offended. Referring to the hats as "slop buckets" was a bit inappropriate. Perhaps "chamber pots" would have been better.

She sees the cars and the spokes are visible on the car, so it must have stopped for her.

I should have used the letter "S" in the thread title. Looks like they're all Model Ts.

As a woman in the 20's, you were very much "in style" if you had the
chest of a 9-year-old boy. I never have been attracted to young boys,
or that look in women. Call me weird. :-)

While I like the clothing designs and details, this one major fashion flaw
earns the overall look a "fail" for this fan of the curvy woman.
