Three different types of headgear : front view

This is an interesting photograph showing three males in different types of headgear. The man seated on the grass is a hawker who wears a skull cap. In front of him on his left are his basket of food and a pail. On his right is a smiling Malay boy dressed in a big shirt, sarong and songkok. Behind them, a little boy in an oversized topi looks on curiously. Title devised by Library staff. Date of creation estimated.
