ShutterButton: Tales Of The Jazz Age

How rad is this vintage pic from 1953? Not quite the Jazz Age, mind you, but channeling some of that glitzy energy nonetheless. This ball was part of Penn’s Junior Week, which included a series of social and athletic events around Thanksgiving that culminated in a Junior Cane March. At some point over the past century this ceremonial student parade transformed into a drunken free-for-all, but hey, no one’s complaining.

If it’s not the Jazz Age, then maybe don’t title the post “Tales of the Jazz Age.” We get you want to show off your knowledge of F. Scott titles, but this seems really ham-fisted. 1953? CLOSE ENOUGH JAZZ AGE JAZZ AGE!!!!
