    So many hats, and nothing of the baseball variety! :)

    Is that Kenmore Square in the background?

    Love the hats, and very intrigued by the vintage billboards.

    I've found references to Thomas W Lawson and Everybody's Magazine on, but what is the reference to "The System's Slate"? Does anyone have any idea?
