The Coasters: 1942

The Coasters: 1942

Another of Albert Fenn's uncaptioned New York photos from 1942, this one part of a series of pictures showing the violinist and bandleader Eddie South with his family at home. A very tidy home -- note that even the Coke bottles have coasters. Office of War Information archive negative. View full size.

The game?

Banque Russe? Double solitaire? Fifty-two Pick Up?

What's their game?

Looks like they're playing spit.

Djangology

Eddie South's collaborations with Django Reinhardt are well worth a listen!

Damn straight there are coasters

Those 1930s wood finishes get rings like nobody's business if you get 'em wet.
