Berets of Camogli

I have to thank my Milanese friend Sergio for the link to these pictures. 
They all come from this web site; vintage photographs of the last 120 years picturing life in Camogli. a small Italian fishing village and tourist resort located on the west side of the peninsula of Portofino, on the Golfo Paradiso at the Riviera di Levante, in the province of Genoa on the Italian Riviera.
Many photo's show fishermen wearing the typical Italian workers beret, or basco Roma, while others show the local variety: a knitted beret with a pompom on top. 
Life evolves around fishing, with many photographs showing life in the small port, the catch being brought in (giant turtles, sharks and whales included), the various (religious) festivals and architecture. One can spent much time flicking through the pictures...
