Mike Connor stopped over yesterday and had his summer fedora at the ready. We looked at the attached photo of NYC management personnel touring NYC's Niagara Falls Yard in 1966. Mike thought he knew a few of these folks but one thing I noticed, based on Randy's prior comments, was the wearing of fedoras. This is 1966 and all the older gentlemen in the photo have fedoras but most of the young bucks do not.
To keep this OT, attached is another Erie East Buffalo photo from 1943 doing track repairs, wearing a variety of head gear.
