More in our Classic Preppy People Week.... This was one of Miss Betty's favorite "Classic Preppy" types and mine as well. His name? It's preppy, too..... Baker Harrison. "Uncle Baker" was one of my dad's best friends, and he owned an amazing clothing store called Harrison-Payne. Harrison-Payne was in Delray Beach in the "winter season" and in Kennebunkport, Maine in the "summer season"....and in Virginia Beach as well.....although that store closed in the 60's I believe, and Baker and Mr. Payne focused on their other stores after that. (Baker is on the left in the picture. Love his outfit for deep sea fishing in Florida, mid 1950's....)
