LOVE it! "Hi Hon" might be "Hiltons" ?

Michael said...

Hmmm, you may be right, Heidi.

"Hi hon" didn't make much sense.

Alan Smithee said...

Might is also be "NY Press Inst." ?

Michael said...

It might be, Alan, but there was a NY Dress Institute on Broadway that was formed in the 1940s to strengthen the garment industry.

I did a search for Eagle Marone Phtography and came up with this link to a pdf...

mid page - (Cover photo by Eagle-Marone Studios.)

The magazine is from Friday, May 14, 1948. Too bad they didn't include the cover.

Michael said...

Moon, I did the same search and found the cover (it's rather boring)

Will post when I get into work.

It almost looks like the "st" of "inst" might be "st" for street; the "s" is written differently there than in the word "dress" (or "press"). I say that knowing it doesn't make sense unless the other words are all abbreviations, too. And that makes no sense, either (at least to me!).

Jeanne said...

Oops, forgot to say: I thought "Hilton" too.
