Today's picture was taken in 1921 in Amman, Jordan. Hat wise, it gives us a lot to look at. The man in the center is Herbert Samuel, and he is wearing a dashing British style hat, but I don't know what it is called. I have a hat shaped like that, and it is a wonderful hat to wear in the sun. It keeps the head very cool, and allows air to circulate around the top of the head much better than other hats. Mrs. PJM asks that I not wear it, however, as she feels it makes me look like a "Dufus". However, when she is not around, I will wear it to town.
The small man to the left of Samuel is Lawrence of Arabia, looking very much out of character in a western business suit and felt hat. To the right of Samuel is King Abdula.
Overall, a very interesting picture!
