On February 25th, the Junior League of Dallas hosted its 50th Annual Ball with ball chair, Elizabeth Gambrell. Sponsored by Sewell Automotive Companies, this year's ball was titled "A Night at the Peacock Terrace" and took guests back to 1922 to the famous Baker Hotel - speakeasy style! High atop the (now demolished) Baker Hotel in Dallas on the 18th floor was a famous ballroom modeled after an old English Inn by renowned Dallas architects, Fooshee and Cheek. Known far and wide as the Peacock Terrace, the ballroom was popular with debutantes, movie stars, and swing bands during the 20s. This year's annual ball recreated the Peacock Terrace with beautiful flapper girls, a 20s band, peacock models, and more. After enjoying the auction, seated dinner, and dance floor, guests headed to the hidden speakeasy in the building, deemed Club 1922, for a late night party sponsored by the Dallas Southwest Osteopathic Physicians.
