The sunny climes and warm weather of California life is ideal for constant outdoor living and playing. This photograph by Alexander Paal, from the November 1940 House & Garden, perfectly illustrates the notion that, as the editors noted, 'playing is easy for Californians.' And not just any Californian: inside this hoop is the movie star Paulette Goddard.
