Railroads on Parade (1939)

The play Railroads on Parade was featured at the 1939/40 New York World's Fair. It told the story of railroad transportation progress from the 1820s until 1939, and into the future. The photo below depicts a "woman of the future" from the cast and can be found in the book Dawn of a New Day, published in 1980.

The hat must double as a satellite dish... Or maybe the whole ensemble is called the Posturator -- guaranteed to keep you in perfect posture or they'll refund your gold-pressed latinum!

I believe that many of the pieces featured in this play are now part of the collection of the B&O Railroad Museum.

Looks similar to the Drynen sp? or Whoopie Goldberg character from the Star Trek Next Generation tv series.
