The Civic Ball In Silhouette, 1917

      Merrymakers at the Greater New York Civic Ball, held at the Biltmore in aid of after care for infantile paralysis cripples, took keen delight in the society revival of the fad of a generation ago--cut out silhouettes. Miss Beatrix Sherman, whose skill in catching a likeness with the scissors has been turned to pleasure and profit, made these. Above, at the left, is Dr. Haven Emerson, New York's Health Commissioner. Beside him is Miss Elsie Irving Tappin. Below, at the left, is Mrs. Edward E. McCall, and at the right is Major Cornelius Vanderbilt.
