Where is Governer's Island? Is this an event/festival or is it 1920-1930s dress all the time?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:16 AM) : 

the gloves!


Blogger Bey said ... (10:21 AM) : 

These pictures are great! Love their clothes! They look so stylish! Is this some sort of event?


Blogger noelakadjtambour said ... (10:39 AM) : 

the best part about the 20's style clothing is that they compliment all shapes and sizes.

the best part about these photos is that they are so exuberant. they transcend 'fashion'.

i hope that the spirit of the roaring 20's get back to the u.s. soon


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:56 AM) : 

Agree with the other comments, these photos make me smile :)
Love love love the guy's outfit in 2nd photo and the lady's shoes!


Blogger Rosie Unknown said ... (10:59 AM) : 

I love the crochet top and skirt in the first picture! The colour combo is amazing!


Blogger susannajulian said ... (11:04 AM) : 

That crochet lace dress - or is it a skirt + top? - is one of the raunchiest pieces of clothing I've seen in a long time! The cling, the weight of the skirt. I can see why she wore it to dance in, and I can see why he asked her to dance.


Blogger Hanna Persson said ... (11:28 AM) : 

I love the light in these photos, it's very warm!


Blogger SallyO said ... (11:49 AM) : 

Are you marooned on that island?


Blogger R.B. said ... (11:50 AM) : 

Very "Fred Astaire". Funny !


Blogger Molly Gertenbach said ... (12:28 PM) : 

I love the way the scarf is tied around her head, it's so adorable looking.


Blogger Fannah said ... (12:36 PM) : 

I love all the outfits in the second picture. The curly girl in the back has the greatest little vest! The guy is wow. I love the playing card-hat, the shoes, the suspenders.. Wow, once again.


Blogger Virginia de la Reynares said ... (1:33 PM) :

Governors Island is in the New York harbor, near Ellis Island. These photos were from their Jazz-Age Lawn party the other weekend--live music & dance, picnicking, etc. Great fun!

June 6th & 7th, Saturday and Sunday, all day: Michael Arenella and the Dreamland Orchestra Presents the Jazz Age Lawn Party
All weekend long, Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra will cast a magical spell of hot jazz and open-air merriment that will delight the whole family. This Jazz-Age Lawn party brings you back in time to the 1920s for a rollicking and delightful afternoon rendezvous of live music and dance, instruction in period dances, picnicking, and games. Admission is $5 each day (free for children under 5).


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:51 PM) : 

The great point about all these pictures is I felt curious about the place so I searched for it. Let me say "thank you" for the great discover I made.


Blogger Stacy said ... (6:42 PM) :

i especially adore the woman in the background of the second photograph


Anonymous LMc said ... (7:05 PM) : 

How fun! Wish I had been there!


Blogger Patricia said ... (8:12 PM) : 

The man in the hat looks like one of the happiest people on earth. The softness of the light, the warm glow around them, it looks like the most beautiful place on earth. Thank you.


Blogger Chapstick Kills said ... (8:42 PM) : 

how cute are they?!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:59 PM) : 

These really are the most extraordinarily uplifting images. Each new image uploaded from this event has given me a joyous lift when I've opened the blog. Perhaps we should all wear clothes like this and dance every day.


Blogger Peter Breese said ... (9:47 PM) : 

Magnificent. Look like such fun!


Blogger Ashley said ... (10:17 PM) : 

Governor's Island truly is a magical spot. I love all the photos! The people in it are timeless which I love.

As always, BEAUTIFUL exposure.

I'm always super happy when you share your pictures from Governor's Island too. Lovely.

These look like stills from a beautiful film.


Blogger just.a.train said ... (1:07 AM) : 

Love the woman's outfit! The dress and the headdress would fit right into Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. I like the man's hat, especially with the ace of clubs card tucked at the brim.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:19 AM) : 

As a fellow swing-dancer, I definitely appreciate this post! Older people who dance always make me smile. I wanna be 86 and still swingin' and stylin'!

Nice nostalgic pictures, but why we doesn't have pictures from Veuve Clicquot polo in gouvernor island?


Anonymous meg said ... (5:53 AM) : 

To me, the top picture is all about that gentleman's huge grin! He looks like he's having the time of his life... and is totally stylish to boot.

the looks are amazing. love them dancing.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:25 AM) : 

The bow tie/spectator competition is fierce, but the older gent wins. The young gun should know better than to ruin good trousers with clip-on suspenders.

my heart just smiled. great photos. great feeling.


Blogger Unknown said ... (3:39 PM) : 

What great photos, Sart! You've really captured the moment here, people having all kinds of fun. Makes me want to be in a dance contest...
