This is from the late 1940s.  For me in New York in the 1980s, wearing a tuxedo, smoking a cigarette and hanging out with an elegantly dressed woman in a bar wasn’t an everyday occurrence, or a weekly occurrence, or even a monthly occurrence, but it wasn’t so rare as to be automatically memorable.  It was just something that happened from time to time, in the normal course of life.

I can’t imagine that any guy born in the 1980s or later could really relate to that.  Our strain grows weaker.
