    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.

    This Victrola gramophone came out somewhere between 1902 and 1905. The original oak horn was cracked in 1906, not from the San Francisco earthquake, but during the fire, when its owners were pulling it from the house. It now belongs to Jason Hale, a collector of antique Victrolas and jukeboxes. For his picnic, he also brought beautiful Depression glassware.
