For some reason he looks like an extra character from Midnight Cowboy in this shot. Or it could be imagination. But the feeling is there...

Interesting point. I'm pretty sure during his early years in New York Wolfe visited 42nd street . . . and probably not in connection with a story. Although it's hard for me to imagine The Man in the White Suit hanging around the Playland Arcade without getting it all musty (the suit, not the arcade). He probably dressed down for the occasion.

This could be the illustration in the dictionary entry for "affectation".
