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.
