An Usher would have worked in a major station, directing people to the proper track, etc. A similar job exists today. At NY Penn Station, there are people who wait at the top of the stairs down to the tracks, and control the flow of passengers down to the train. (I've seen them in Philadelphia, too.)
I'm not positive, but I think the NYC equivalent was 'Gateman'.

      I'm curious about the PC Usher's job. What would that person have done
for the PC?
