Note the Indian, I mean Native American arrow
through the hat. Now that's Old School:

Can't remember when they did away with that
arrow. I know it's wicked un-PC, but I kind
of liked it in a goofy way.

Was when they had the happy little Pilgrim with the arrow through his head on the toll ticket - and all the hats on signs were green because Old Man Callahan at the turnpike authority wanted to stick it to the Brahmins.

What, one of own Boston Irish forebears carrying
a grudge, and wanting to stick to the Yankees
(and I don't mean the Jeter)?

Shocking!

One of my favorite Curley stories is that he
would have one of his operatives dress as
a Brahmin cleric (pick the Protestant denomination
of your choice) and canvas Irish Catholic
neighborhoods for his opponent.
