Soup with Style

This is my sister Linda at a Depression Dinner hosted in the Art Deco city of Napier NZ (my hometown was re-built after an earthquake in 1931).

From what I can gather the people dress as paupers and chase the wealthy down the road for some food?

The rich are dressed in their Art Deco finery...it must be a fab sight to see and I can't wait to get the chance to go one day.

Linda is wearing an apron made out of a washed sugar or flour sack cloth.

I love the pretty details on the Graphic 45 tag sheets
