1920 – Children’s Easter Party

1920s easter meal


    • Looking at it I think it may have been taken at the San Gabriel Mission – built sometime in the 1770s… Or, Mr. Hearst plundered some European landmark and brought back the pieces to decorate his garden 😉

    Takes me back to tea parties as a child – we used to have very similar ones at school in a wonderful Edwardian schoolhouse.
    Bonnet Parades too and egg hunts – these snaps are such a joy!
    Yours ever
    The Perfumed Dandy

    Wahaha! Imagine that…
    The San Gabriel Mission? That sounds familiar and interesting. I must look that up. Thanks, V. Such a wonderful mind as ever! Hope your day is lovely (and warm), R.
    P.S. How are things going with the novel business?

    • The San Gabriel Mission, if I may use an outdated accolade, is cool. And, the mother vine, the first grape vine planted in California is there with a twisted, whirling, trunk that must have a circumference of four feet. Things are going well with the novel, I am going to check with my publishers and see if I can share the cover art…

    Oh, that’s exciting! I’d think it must be pretty thrilling to be able to say “I’ll check with my publishers”, too… So glad the wind is blowing fair for you.
    “A twisted, whirling, trunk…”, that sounds a wondrous sight. “Cool” an “outdated accolade”? I think not! It’s a fantastically appropriate and alive one here. I’m usually uptight with words but you loosened me up enough that I used it myself in a comment to you recently 🙂

    What can I say, liebling, but “Holy Moly”! I am thoroughly *honoured*. There isn’t a Smiley emoticon *smiley* enough 🙂 I can’t wait to see the pictures! Talking with you already brought brightness to a dreary day so now I feel FULL of light! I know, I know… Too many exclamation marks, I’m trying to be rein it in and be cool…but…can’t! (there’s another)
    Many kisses and the warmest hug ever – see, I’m *so* not cool – R (or “G. K.”!)

  5. What a great photo. Each place set with a little nest and bunnies all over the place 🙂
    I don’t envy the one who had to do the dishes though…
