Look at the hats! Click on the picture to enlarge it and see more hats. This was the days when everyone wore one. The fashion statement continued more or less until JFK gave his inauguration speech hatless. That was the beginning of the end for hats. I used to like seeing the Bogie films when everyone wore a hat with the brim pulled down. It was also the day of no personal technologies that's for sure. This crowd is standing around in Washington D.C. watching that board under the canopy, a manually operated device depicting runners on base and the current score. Different times, different people, but with one common interest, we all love (loved) baseball.
