Happy New Year from Box Turtle Bulletin

(In 1908, J.C. Leyendecker painted his first Baby New Year for Saturday Evening Post. Baby New Year grew and lost wings over the years, in 1912 was a baby girl (to celebrate suffrage), gained a top hat in ’33 (seen above), and even wore a gas mask in 1940. The iconic image of a toddler in a top hat and sash, ubiquitous this time of year, is based on the image crafted and popularized by Leyendecker.)

While I am familiar with the image of Baby New Year with a top hat, isn’t the hat in the image above a bowler hat?
