Stills from a Beaux Arts Ball film

The old footage has turned a warm magenta shade, but the hand on the camera is surprisingly steady. The lighting is sufficient and the crude cuts are well timed. It is a Beaux Arts party, complete with costumes and wondering dancers, minstrels, and scantily clad youth. "All the Shiny people" comes to mind and I almost fall into the 1970's innocence of the Florida hippies.
