Ray, here's one from about 1955, Campy G.S. equipped with Campy open-C dropouts: http://www.wooljersey.com/gallery/Torpado_1955_Gran_Sport_52cmBlue

(The rear dropout is shown clearly in the last four photos of the album, pages 2 and 3).

When did rear derailleur hangers come into play. I have seen recently several bikes listed on ebay as being from the 50s with hangers and it does not sit well with me yet. Perhaps I just need more education.
