V92: 1920s Sporty Skit at The Auto Museum

Apr 1, 2012 2 comments

Yesterday Lady Carolyn and I finished up our appearances at the Auto Museum's 1920s Symposium with a silly skit in which well-to-do Mrs. Carpenter (Carolyn) was going camping in Yosemite in one of the very first motor homes, the KampKar made by Ford.  I played her ditzy, thieving maid Mabel, who'd been "swimming" down in the lake, where Mr. Carpenter was supposed to be "fishing."  It was great, improvisational fun - Carolyn wore her new sporting togs, and I wore my 1920s swim suit from last year, and we just chewed the scenery to bits. :-)

Here are some photos:

Carolyn in her sporting togs, a faithful copy of some seen in the 1923 Sears catalog.
This incredibly Lincoln is the only car like this in the world - only one of these was made, and this is it.
The KampKar - looked pretty comfy inside.


  1. Cute! There wasn't such fun at the car show we just had in my town!

  2. Total cuteness to both of you! I love seeing pics of costumes with scenery - makes it all that more believable. Kudos!
