Raccoon Coat

Description

Elwood Hand of Southport may have been keeping up with fashion trends by wearing the fur coat and hat in this photograph. Full-length raccoon coats became an important item for men during the 1920s, and while they were especially seen on college campuses, successful businessmen like Hand also sported them.
