Dressing the part

Pop ice fishing, January 1938

Pop- all dressed up for ice fishing, January 1938

I came across this picture in a letter to Mom from Aunt Nonie (Pop’s sister).  My, how times have changed!

” . . . when the men went fishing even alone, with no women, they always wore white shirts and their ties.  I am sending a picture of your Dad ice fishing.  Also they wore their fedora hats.  I miss seeing all the white shirts and ties.  When we started to golf, us women wore dresses, as there wasn’t anything as slacks.”
