You’ve heard of zoot suits - but did you know there were also zoot skirt suits? A woman only identified by her first name, Josie, is wearing one such suit while standing on the corner of E. 41st St. and Long Beach Avenue in Los Angeles, California in 1945. In the background is the restaurant, El Tonga.
