Another night spent for my project about retro socialising. I went to the New Sheridans Club Night at The Wheatsheaf, where I knew many members of this vintage club.

Evadne Raccat talked about “pretty ladies in pretty dresses” with an elaboration of The Duchess of Devonshire’s Ball. Held in 1897, this fancy-dress party, with royal guests of honour, was notable because Lafayette set up a photo booth and made records of many of the costumes, giving an insight into the telling ways that different guests interpreted the code of historical or exotic dress.
