Subject: pickle- low party

Last week I saw an exhibition of Dorothea Lange photographs at

at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Included was one of a

handlettered sign on a telephone pole in Pittsboro, N.C.

It was a general invitation to a "pickle-/low party" (hyphen

before linebreak), and couples would be charged fifteen cents.

I can see possibilities in low life and getting pickled, but

that is just speculation. I haven't gotten anywhere with the

apparent dictionaries. Anybody know what it is? Curiosity.
