The 1926 Tatler   By:

Book cover

The 1926 Tatler, edited by Margaret Louise Newhall, offers a captivating glimpse into the elite social scene of 1920s America. Filled with a vibrant collection of articles, photographs, and advertisements, this book provides a unique window into the lives of the wealthy and influential during this glamorous era.

One of the most striking aspects of The 1926 Tatler is its stunning visual content. The book is lavishly illustrated with photographs that beautifully capture the fashion, parties, and opulence of the time. From elegant ball gowns to exquisite jewelry, these images transport readers back in time, allowing them to immerse themselves in the grandeur of the Jazz Age.

Newhall's editorial work is commendable, showcasing an insightful selection of articles that cover a wide range of topics relevant to the period. Readers can delve into intriguing articles on society gossip, current events, fashion trends, and the arts, providing a well-rounded and engaging reading experience. The snippets of interviews with prominent figures of the time offer a glimpse into their thoughts and aspirations, further enhancing the allure of the era.

Furthermore, The 1926 Tatler provides a fascinating historical context, shedding light on the cultural norms and attitudes prevalent during the 1920s. Through the advertisements and articles, readers gain insights into the values, consumerism, and aspirations of the upper-class society. It serves as a valuable resource for anyone interested in understanding the social fabric of the Roaring Twenties, particularly through the lens of the privileged few.

While the book effectively offers a vivid portrayal of this exclusive world, it does have its limitations. The content is heavily centered around the upper echelons of society, leaving little room to explore the experiences of those outside this elite bubble. Additionally, the book's focus on glamour and excess may not appeal to readers seeking a more nuanced examination of the period or a more comprehensive look at the societal issues of the time.

Despite these minor drawbacks, The 1926 Tatler remains a captivating and visually stunning book that transports readers to the dazzling world of 1920s high society. Margaret Louise Newhall's editorial prowess, combined with the evocative imagery and informative articles, creates an enchanting portrait of an extravagant era. Whether you are a history enthusiast, a lover of fashion, or simply intrigued by the glamor of a bygone era, this book will undoubtedly captivate and transport you to a time of shimmering parties and extravagant lifestyles.

The 1926 Tatler

[Illustration: {A group of riders on horseback}]


School days are joy days; days filled with the pleasures of friendships and the gladness of intimacy, with the satisfaction of work well done and the pride in having done it for one's school. And we at Northrop School have been blessed with such days from the time of four entering as kindergarteners, up through grammar school and our subsequent joining of the League; on through these last days when, as high school girls, we took a real part in the activities of school life, and felt ourselves to have each one a share, however small, in the great whole, our Alma Mater. And it is to recollection of these joys and to the memory of our school days that we of the senior class wish to dedicate the 1926 Tatler.
