    Picture Stories: Stepping out in style

    The wonderful photos kept coming. For several weeks, black and white photos with a mix of people, events and celebrations turned up on the auction table. An auction-house staffer told me that a dealer brought them in each week. Most were historical photos, a few were portraits, and all were embedded with stories that I couldn’t wait to release.

    Over the past few weeks, I have shared some of those old photos and the stories behind them in a series called “Picture Stories.” This is the final installment. You can see all the others at Auction Finds.

    ‘Stepping out in style’ knows no time or age
