What Immigration Brings

These are the members of the Swedish Mustache Club of Tacoma about 1903. You may ask yourself when did facial hair become hipster ironic? Well the answer (in Tacoma anyway) is about 1903 when a bunch of guys kept a straight face in chefs hats and sailor suits while having their picture taken. Is that an accordion playing in background?

Not to be outdone, there are the these hipster girls from 1924. Some historians are sour on the 20’s but some aspects are just so sweet. Like whatever craze got into the heads of these four girls. It seriously reminds me of an Arlo Guthrie song about “just wanta ride my motorsickle”.

  1. Interesting! If you see an accordion, you see better than I do! 🙂 I love how the girl second left, has her hand flung mop-like, over her friend’s shoulder..
    Thanks Michael!
