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 particular picnic featured many toys and games, including these Mickey and Minnie Mouse dolls and Monolopy board, plus books and vintage magazines. There's even a catalog for Lyon's Electric Supplies.
