First Fixed Gear Hipsters, circa 1880?

Were these guys the first fixed gear hipsters? Fausto Coppi was cool way back in 1950s but these dudes had the steez already in 1880s or so. 

How come? Because they had:

1.) Steel frame
2.) Brooks type leather saddle
3.) Fixed gear
4.) Pseudo moustache/pseudo riser bars
5.) Leather belts from which to stick their kryptonite minis
6.) No brakes
7.) No foot retention 
9.) White tyres

Look here for more debate...
