Button description Uniforms not worn

Comment Photographs indicate that staff wore a variety of informal attire (see link), including bowler hats and flat caps, strongly suggesting that the company did not issue uniforms, and that marked buttons therefore never existed. However, a single photograph seems to suggest that conductors may have been issued with uniforms for a short period, though this is hardly conclusive.
