Some old photos of the Tour de France of 1928 have just been added to Flickr by Numerius. Do you think goggles will make a comeback like caps?
and no cap in this one but it is excellent!

I believe the first one is the Pelissier brothers giving their famous interview to Albert Londres where they showed him their suite of drugs and where Henri said, “We run on dynamite.” Londres titled his article ‘Forcats de la Route’ and the famous description of the riders as ‘Prisoners of the Road’ was born. That was in 1924, though.
The bottom one is Octavio Bottecchia, winner in 1924 and 1925, and I’ve seen the picture credited to the latter date. Plus, he died in 1927. Great to see the old pics, though, no matter if the dates might be a little out.
