Time and Change at Yale


Easha Anand describes some of the changes over the years in men’s clothing stores and other traditional near-campus resources. I can sum it up for him: the storefront at College & Chapel which in my day contained Johnny’s Pipe Center (which blended the best pipe tobacco in the world until Johnny passed away late in the 1960s) had become a vendor of tatoos and body piercings the last time I was in New Haven. It had had a long intermediate career selling caramel corn.

I worked at the Karmelcorn shop on College & Chapel in 1971. I remember an experiment I did with a co-worker. I wore sunglasses and he didn’t. We stood next to each other behind the counter. No one asked me for my help, and my co-worker had to help all. That’s was what I predicted, but I don’t know why it happened. No eye contact? They thought I was the manager? You tell me.
