Here's a picture from Shorpy of Col. Fulgencio Batista, Cuba's Dictator in 1938.

What I'm thinking is: if I were a dictator (and into the whole military dress-up thing), I'd give myself I higher rank than colonel. Wouldn't you?

That pic wasn't coming up for me. I had never heard of that site. Cool pics. A couple of the Boston shots remind me of a book I have called something like Boston Then and Now. It contains side-by-side pictures of a location in Boston as it looked sometime in the past, and how it looks now.
