This weekend, I went to the The Edwardian Ball & World's Faire 2011, held in San Francisco's Regency Ballroom (built 1909) on January 21 and 22, celebrating macabre mid-century storybook illustrator Edward Gorey, as well as Edwardian, Victorian, and Roaring Twenties fashion.

This steam-powered machine, created by Kinetic Steam Works, ran fans and light bulbs. Thanks to Nomi Glina for taking these photos.

    Lisa as a kid I grew up going trough old industrial warehouses all day here in Seattle. and seeing all the machinery, I would like to see this Ballroom when I'm down there. 45 years later as a collector the hunt is still on. Thanks for the Pics

    The Edwardian-era is my favorite of charm & sophistication! =)
