A quick read regarding the New York bums and con-men of 1938; East side, West side, all around the town:

"The slicker keeps a girl and a car out of the quarters he collects by stemming with charm, looking as genteel as a son of the suburbs. The sparrow needs a shave, grubs along on nickle touches. A gimp is the fake cripple who turns over part of your dime to a syndicate. The average man who forks over is no richer than a gimp, makes less than a slicker."


Bums of the Big City (Ken Magazine, 1938)
