The video I posted a couple of days ago, with the service station owner dressed in a crisp uniform and a cap, reminded me of how people used to dress. If you look at old pictures of baseball games, men are wearing ties and hats, women are in dresses. Nurses wore starched hats and white dresses, not loose fitting scrubs. Last night there as an ad for an new TV show about Pan Am Airlines, and it showed the stewardesses in their iconic blue uniforms.
So here is a picture of a man dressed for work. What was his job?
The man is my grandfather. The uniform is what he wore as an employee of an inter-city bus company. He is standing in front of his bus. It was probably taken around 1930.
I don’t know that it was any better, but it sure was different.
