Did you notice all the men wearing a full suite and tie?. Perfect clothing for taking in the CNE and the Midway rides on a hot August day. I wonder if that will ever come back into fashion?

Check the photo below of the kids at the CNE Waterfront. All cotton cloths. No Perma Press to be found. Their Mom’s must have slaved keeping up with the weekly ironing. Life is so much easier now, with Jeans and Polyster blend T-Shirts.
