It was a decade of empowerment for women and the beginning of Modern America. Music, dancing, and clothing was transformed. Prohibition was alive and well and the mafia was a real presence. It was a time for celebration and the entire country joined the party. I would dance the nights away.

“Americans were embracing the opportunities and reaping the benefits from the country’s postwar economic growth, and it was a cause for celebration. The decade was being hailed as the Roaring Twenties, and the mentality of the youth was changing with the times.

They had extra cash in their pockets, and they were feeling their oats, they even dressed as if they were living the dream. They had grown up in the land of the free, and to them, it meant free spirited.” (Forty Years In A Day, page 217)
