Napier in New Zealand was leveled by an earthquake in 1931and rebuilt in art deco style. Every year they hold an art deco festival, this year I went in the latest incarnation of the !st Virginia Dragoons costume.
Every time I've worn this I've taken prizes,this time was the biggest. Hundreds of people in the audience, and my sidekick certainly helped.
More from the weekend:
Coming home we stopped at a backwater station just as the art deco express pulled in.
