Fashion notes

Old modellersBrowsing some old magazines, I found this wonderful scene from 1941. Swiss modellers looking at a Royal Scot they were building.

What a wonderful scene. The guys would visit their club every week dressed in suits. The chap in the front is obviously some sort of beatnik with his jumper over a shirt. Everyone else sports a jacket and tie.

How different from today's modellers dressed nearly uniformly in jeans. Personally I'm not complaining but in 60 years, even railway modellers fashion choices have changed !
