Historic 1950's photo of the Odd Fellows Hall in San Francisco courtesy of an odd fellow who provided this rare photo anonymously. The Odd Fellows have a tradition of wearing masks and thus initiated the practice in the early 1900's of supporting political leaders masked.

The Bombay Bicycle Club does not subscribe to the wearing of masks, however. Ties are permitted. Hats can be worn but only the broad-brimmed type with long black rain-coats or, alternatively, a highlander kilt with highlander colors true to the court of St. James.
