(Some of the images may be for the mature, for adult situations.)

Masie is a lively young female of fashionable dress and silhouette
in the 1920s, often seen on South Island, Spontoon Atoll -
 usually partying at the newer resort hotels,
favorite hangouts of her social set.

*  Masie Takes the Pullman Car - by Simon Barber  *
In 1929, Masie Mallard left the Spontoon Islands, where she'd been holidaying unrestrainedly.
 Returning to the United States, She boarded a train home, reserving a suite in one of the streamliner's
 Pullman sleeping cars - somewhat depressed as her holiday was over, and the bootlegger
she'd been to before had been raided and wiped out by unsympathetic G-men.
She was in the need of some cheering up - and very late at night noticed that
the attendant "George" was both handsome and not at all busy.
