Zoot Suits

I ran across this article last weekend.  You should be able to “click onto it” to enlarge it and thus, better read it.  There’s a reference to 1942 in the article.  It might be from 1943.  On the reverse side there’s an article “Ex-Blackshirt Leader Held as Dangerous Alien.”  I’m not sure which Detroit newspaper this is from, but yes, a good find.

Here’s some other information about Zoot Suits:
