In response to an inquiry (from Jim Beebe, I think) the name of the dancing 
tailor was Scotty Piper. He had a shop on 47th St since at least the 1930s 
and had provided uniforms for big bands back in the old days. He was one of 
the few surviving institutions from the glory days of the South Side. I think 
I''ve got a tape somewhere of an interview that ran on the radio some years 
back and a copy of a newspaper article on him that I would be glad to xerox 
for anyone who asks for one offline.
