And again, given the source, we would assume it was not a job. As members of the ATS, like “” (1944): The outfit could also be found 70 years ago.
That is: even taking this photo for granted, as depicting an authentic scene, a real man with his curious glasses and outfit in Canada 70 years ago, there’s nothing that can be seen that is actually out of place or time.
