On a glorious October day like today, the question is; what to wear?

If you're not sure, I'd plump for the boilersuit, bunnet and tackety boots look, rather than the skimpy, high-heels, sunhat and swimsuit combo, seen here in the Botanic Gardens in 1958.

I suspect these ladies are about to face their own cold front, and freezing bahookies! I think their agent might also be in for a right earful.

I'm also loving the parkie's witch-style besom broom - ideal for a quick Hallowe'en escape. And is that 'nicky-tams', or bicycle clips he's wearing, to stop an icy blast from shooting up his inside leg?

Despite today's glorious autumn sunshine, the chill in the air this morning proves that winter isn't far away...
