old school axle/dropout question

i normally dont start threads like this and im sure its a stupid question, but its before my time so im curious.

a normal axle wont fit in here, so anything short of a slotted axle or using a hammer, how do you put a 3/8 axle wheel on this style drop out? lol please forgive my ignorance

There are axles that are not round but flat on 2 "sides" that fit into this type of dropout. More mid to new school I believe.

Slotted axle, if you are careful you can flatten them yourself using a dremel/grinder
