Vogue-cabulary: U Is for Under Glass

Let’s bring back the old slang, and appreciate the slang from then which still occurs now. This edition of Vogue-cabulary will put you in good form if you accidentally transport back to the Interwar period!

A square tile with art deco design of gold, blues, grey-purples, and light greens showcasing the letter U. At the bottom it says "is for under glass." Two characters who look like 1930s gangsters have a short dialogue within the design, saying, "Where's mickey?" And the other says "They've got him under glass in Sing-Sing." Above in the design, there are what looks like two fists holding onto jail bars.

Under Glass: in jail. 1920s.
