1918 Medford masquerade party

Parties were commonplace in the Rogue Valley when many prosperous people from the East Coast invested in the booming pear industry shortly after the turn of the century. In 1918, Leonard Carpenter hosted a masquerade party at his house in Medford. Mrs. Dan Clark was among those attending. Dressed as a mummy, she was wrapped to a board and unable to fit into the family Model T. Thoughtfully placed across the back seat by her husband, she arrived at the party having been driven through the streets of Medford with her head and feet sticking out either side of the car.
