The Roaring Twenties

Ever wondered what it must have been like to live in the Twenties Era?
I got to thinking the other day about the fashion, fun, music and frivolity of that time.https://i2.wp.com/rlv.zcache.com.au/dainty_frocks_roaring_twenties_vintage_fashion_poster-r4bc99dba13bf45e5ac6450fd7b91c9a9_ai41z_400.jpg
Was it so or is it just our perception ?
Of course it was the time of the Gangster and sadly the Depression and Stock Market Crash.
So lets take a look and see what really went on.

All About The Roaring Twenties : History

Interestingly as I researched through the information it seemed
there is always a particular style portrayed in many movies and photographs to
depict the 1920s. However there were many more styles as you will see looking through  the links.

What about the inventions of the 1920s it wasn’t called the industrial revolution for nothing.  It was a time of creativity in all areas.  The people of the 1920s, Toys, Homes and more.
It was also the time of the Gangster due to Prohibition. laws being passed in 1920. There is so much about this time but..
Of course all good things must come to an end and so it was for the 1920s.
I found some differing viewpoints on what really happened in regards to the

The Elizabethan Insult

Does it seem as though the art of language is declining. I’m all for gadgets and stuff, but oh how much fun it seemed language was once long ago.  Especially the Elizabethan Times where everything appears to have been more colourful. Not only in costume but their very descriptive language.  A sign of our times, will we eventually speak like we txt and speak shorthand language. Is this the generation where we become so boring with limited words for expressing ourselves.
A few such words come to mind.  I’m sure you know what they are.
So often used in movies – radio – conversation. I know I’m bored hearing them over and over.  Aren’t you?
To swear or not to swear now that is the question?
Why not for a bit of a lark and try this out.
Enjoy.
The Elizabeth Insult
Romeo: Lady, by yonder blessed moon I vow
That tips with silver all these fruit tree tops

Juliet: Oh, swear not by the moon, th´inconstant moon.
That monthly changes in her circled orb
Lest that thy love prove likewise variable.

Romeo: What shall I swear by?

Juliet: Do not swear at all.
Or, if thou wilt, swear by thy gracious self.
Which is the god of my idolatry.
An I´ll believe thee.

Romeo: If my heart´s dear love —

Juliet: Well, do not swear. Although I joy in thee
I have no joy of this contract tonight.

Could you Image having to learn to read and write in this script.  This is one of the easier ones I found.  Beautiful.  Technology is one thing. It would be nice to not lose the Art of reading, writing and speaking the english language.
