THE ROARING TWENTIES
As we're all aware, this centuries 'twenties' haven't started off so well!
However, in the Roaring Twenties in the 1900's, a surging economy created an era of mass consumerism.
While many countries battled with the fallout from the collapse of empire, revolution and the ongoing impact of colonialism, the US and Europe enjoyed an unprecedented period of creativity and innovation. Cities were growing at breakneck speed, the mass production of cars was transforming both daily life and urban planning, gender norms were being questioned and racial prejudices challenged. A newly awakened thirst for life was quenched in the jazz-filled clubs of Montmartre and the decadent nightclubs of Berlin.
