This was taking place just now down the road from me. Plenty of Aussies, Kiwis and Canadians there. I have no idea who the guys in the stovepipe hats were. They can't all be Abraham Lincoln. :confused:

Maybe they're fans of Brunel, or are maybe representing Brunel University - he was always a fan of a nice stovepipe hat, after all.

That did strike me as a possibility, too.
