Roaring Twenties

Roaring Twenties

The Roaring Twenties was the time of jazz, flappers, and Art Deco. The Roaring Twenties was marked by a feeling of modernity and a break from tradition. Everything seemed doable with modern technology. Such as automobiles, moving pictures, and radio. During that time jazz and dancing became popular, in opposition to the mood of Wold War I. For that reason it was often referred to as the Jazz Age.

About Roaring Twenties

The Roaring Twenties is a term sometimes used to refer to the 1920s, characterizing the era's distinctive cultural edge in most of the world's major cities for a period of sustained economic prosperity. 'Normalcy' returned to politics in the wake of hyper-emotional patriotism during World War I, jazz music blossomed, the flapper redefined modern womanhood, and Art Deco peaked. Economically, the era saw the large-scale diffusion and use of automobiles, telephones, motion pictures, and electricity, unprecedented industrial growth, accelerated consumer demand and aspirations, and significant changes in lifestyle and culture.
