"In the 1920s, Wall Street was a world that was dominated by professional speculators and stock pools. These people had a monopoly over information." -Ron Chernow

The 1920s

In the 20s, people had smaller families, normally with one or two children, as opposed to the larger families of the past (above). The flapper to the right is proudly showing of her flask hidden in boot. Women began to drink alcohol, a liberty that only men had before.

Play this first!

Buisnessmen, like these above, and the cars to the right became familiar sights in the 1920s due to the success of the economy in the United States.

Flappers in Action during the 1920s

Flappers love to have fun!

Fast, risky cars were a way for women to prove their new free attitudes.

"The flapper has charm, good looks, good clothes, intellect, and a healthy point of view."- Colleen Moore
