This weekend, I attended the Gatsby Summer Afternoon, hosted by the Art Deco Society of California. The idea is to re-create an elegant afternoon 1920s party like the ones Jay Gatsby would host in F. Scott Fitzgerald's famed novel. Everything at the party, from the clothing to the cars, had to look or feel like the time between 1920 and the '40s pre-World War II.
Gatsby attendees show off their antiques—a sewing machine, a typewriter, a vintage bag, and a Prohibition sign. The sign reads "Closed for Violation of National Prohibition Act, by order of United States District Court, Northern District of California. All persons are forbidden to enter premises without order from the United States Marshal."
Do you have any information about these items?
