This doesn't surprise me because the rich were bored and indulged in whimsical and stupid fads simply because they could - and nothing has changed.
Having said that I have a few questions / queries / opinions about the photograph:
1. Was it really taken at the house previously on the lot in 1922?
2. Was the photograph really taken in 1922?
3. The figure in the photograph appears to have a full form - i.e., you can see the figure's feet on the carpet - and the face looks as though it is a mask covering the face - the photograph itself is grainy so there is no way to determine this;
4. The individual wishing to remain anonymous makes me think they either don't want to be ridiculed or found out if it is revealed to be a hoax.

I do however have in my possession a photographic plate that shows a strange hooded figure that was claimed to have manifested during said incident. Here is a print of the image I have posted to an old site I use to run:
