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.
