Revel in the Madness, circa 1935

An overzealous Cecil Miller and his smiling balloon fall down on the job amidst the revelry. 

This iconic (and likely staged) photograph of an over-served Mardi Gras reveler doesn’t seem quite as dated as its ca. 1935 time stamp indicates. The masker, identified as Cecil Miller, poses for Stanley Blake McNeely, a freelance photographer based in Mobile whose work appeared in magazines such as Life, Vogue, Fortune and Time.
