Did You Know? There was a huge Mahjong Craze that hit America and spread to big cities around the world in the early 1920s.
A little history - - between around 1922 until 1924, everyone in America was playing the game of Mahjong. The game was introduced by a young man named J.P. Babcock who re-invented Mahjong based on an ancient Chinese tile game. The game became so popular that tearooms held afternoon "Mah-Jong Teas" including lessons and game play, and all sorts of Mahjong themed goods were being created and sold to the fad-craved public - Mah Jong tile sets, beads and bracelets, candy, lingerie and Chinese pajamas, even shoes!
Vintage advertisement from November 1923 for the new "Mah Jong" ladies shoes, in Patent and fine quality Black Suede. "A strictly now creation in the Field of Fashion that will delightfully please". Only $6.50!
Newspaper story "American Youth Is Responsible for Mah Jongg Craze", from January 9th, 1924.
