Mah Jongg is not just a game. It has become a part of my life that allows me to entertain my Mah Jongg-playing friends, cook great meals to serve to them and test my mental skills during our game play (which, hopefully, is often).
Our dear friend Joy alerted me to the following posting on the Shorpy website – enjoy it…and much thanks to Joy!Feb. 6, 1925. “Three Washington society buds in spectacle. The misses Beatrice McLean (left), debutante daughter of Capt. and Mrs. Ridley McLean; Helen Thompson; and Eugenie LeJeune, daughter of General and Mrs. John A. LeJeune; all members of the ‘Group of the Winds’ who will take part in the human ‘Game of Mah Jongg, The Great Dramatic Spectacle,’ to be presented for the first time in the Washington Auditorium under the auspices of the Belleau Wood Memorial Association.” Harris & Ewing Collection glass negative.
