Skelly Tagolene: Bad Stripper Name

TagoleneIllinois1934-002

I’ve never heard of Tagolene, much less Skelly Tagolene. That sounds like a crimp-haired, Newport-smoking, jean skirt-wearing trollop who works the graveyard shift at The Waffle House. Like Skanky Jolene’s younger sister: Skelly Tagolene.

Evidently, it’s not. Check out the art deco font on this map.
