Weather & Berets

 I found this picture of an old tin that once held a barometer on an auction site. Very pretty and it shows once again how ingrained the use of berets was in France; berets were just everywhere and no one would have thought anything of the picture. These days it would be making a statement, adding a beret to any picture.
And of course, there are multiple links between berets and the weather; isn't "the weather" the prime reason for the beret's existence? 
The US Air Force took it a step further; gave their 'combat weathermen' their own berets, in raincloud grey.
