I'm not sure if this is the best place for a question on militaria. If not, perhaps someone could tell me where I might ask it. I want to know about the uniform of the man on the left in this photograph. I can't give you any information about the photo. I don't know where it was taken and I can't date it precisely.

Mystery photo.

Can anyone think of a period drama set in the Art Nouveau period (ca. 1890-1914)? So far I've come up with My Fair Lady (1964) and Klimt (2006). Am I missing anything?

[Current Music |On the Raft with Taft]

Yes, the disembodied floating head as a political advertisment was used by US President Taft long before it was co-opted by less pleasant office seekers.

Also, did you know that President Taft's personal chef was apparently the Cream of Wheat guy?

Now you know.

Attn NYC: Roaring Twenties Dances of Vice Blue Moon Masquerade, October 20th! [Oct. 10th, 2007|10:02 pm]
The Salon:1890-1930

[Current Music |Ruth Etting - 18 I'll Be Blue Just Thinking Of - Ruth Etting]

October 20th: Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra in
in advance

The exclusive DANCES OF VICE Blue Moon Masquerade Ball will take place in less than 10 days, on October 20th! Prepare for scandal as you don your masks and join us in dancing to hot 1920-30s jazz performed by Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra starting at 11pm. Live DJs (His Masters Voice; Matthew) will follow with the best early jazz, blues, swing, big band, cabaret, and tango music of the 1920-30s for your dancing pleasure.

Just added to the Blue Moon Masquerade program is the enchanting Autumn Ward, who will be plucking the moon from the night sky in a dreamy and theatrical dance performance.

To celebrate the release of Issue 3 of Steampunk Magazine, a variety of gifts from Steampunk Magazine will be offered as prizes and giveaways throughout the evening, with an additional assortment of trinkets offered for the best masquerade costumes!

An elaborate vintage paper moon photo booth will also be featured at the event, so "get out and get under the moon" with your special sweetheart on October 20th! Your photo will be taken by distinguished burlesque and fine art photographers Don Spiro and Jen Zakrzewzski using vintage polaroid cameras for an authentic vintage look.

As always, requested attire for Dances of Vice events remains: 1920-30s Vintage, Victorian, Edwardian, Avant Garde, Decadent- or formal evening attire. Extravagance is surely encouraged for our exclusive masquerade ball, so plan on wearing something special! Finally, don't forget to bring a mask! It has been firmly established that unmasked attendees will be fair game for a good spanking.

Tickets for the Blue Moon Masquerade are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. This event is expected to sell out, and space is limited, so reserve your tickets now! Visit http://www.dancesofvice.com for ticketing information.
