    Very cool!

    If I’m not mistaken, some of this footage was used in seasons 3 and 4 of the 1990s BBC TV production of “Jeeves and Wooster” staring Steven Fry as R. Jeeves and notes blues man and Gibson player, Hugh Laurie as Bertie Wooster.

    Yeah I was thinking the same thing. All neon. No computer screens then.

    Men wore hats in the 1930's. If you wore a hat with a 3" brim.....and was at a jazz gig....in NYC.....you would be a black dude and the brim of your hat meant you were 420 Friendly

    You also would have been known as a "Viper" ---- a dude who smoked weed. --- No shit.

    They had to be spec ops style clandestine back then. Understandable.
