My local paper runs a history column, with excerpts from its earlier editions.
100 Years Ago Today:
"A high temperature of 87 degrees was recorded the previous day in Scranton. Due to the heat, straw hats were spotted on the heads of men downtown. Official straw hat season was due to start on May 15."
No word on whether the police were ticketing violators of Official Straw Hat Season, nor whether ladies were seen wearing White Shoes Before Season. At least the gents had the fashion police surveying them, too.
Also no word as to whether this gent was wearing an appropriately seasonal hat while visiting with his mother in Massachusetts, approximately 100 years ago.
Happy (Nowhere near 87 degree) Sunday, everyone!
