Hold That Tiger

Lately we’ve been posting about Princeton and the Joe College years of the late ’20s. Now we combine the two with images from a Charleston-themed retro party held at Princeton in 1949.

Arriving fashionably late in dad’s coonskin coat:

This pair of twinkletoes were winners of the dance contest. Imagine what the losers looked like. — CC

  1. Loving the coat in the second shot – preposterous.

  2. I’m not sure what it is.. but there is something outrageously delightful about the raccoon coat era. I have always found such a coat to be my best friend in the cold — and the immediate subject of conversation by chilled admirers wishing to trade coats. Thanks, but NO DEAL.!

  3. Takes 30-40 raccoons to make a coat.
