Camera Hat

John L. Johnson of Pinehurst, Washington obtained a patent for his "camera support" in 1945. Patent No. 2,369,829. The support provided a way to conceal a camera inside a hat.

I wonder if the patent illustration was a self-portrait.

The wearer was illustrated before getting his nose broken by a wiseguy.

You’d look a little weird walking into a ladies locker room wearing that...
