Signs of the Times (part 9) - Roaring 20's x 2

Saturday Evening Post/


The Roaring Twenties.

A hundred year ago.

A wild time of changes.

Dress went from ankle length to mini-skirts.

Women got the vote.

People danced to upbeat music like The Charleston.

It was a decade of millionaires and moguls.

Stuff that made The Great Gatsby.


The decade started on the tails of the First World War (1914-1918).

The decade ended that Black Tuesday in October of 1929 with the stock market crash.

Which triggered the Great Depression (1929-1939)

That ended with the Second World War (1939-1945)

Turned the world upside down.

Now it's...


New century.

New millennium.

We're into...

The Roaring 20's x 2

What will this decade bring?

As Mark Twain has been given credit for this proverbial gem:

History doesn’t repeat itself  
but it often rhymes

Hang on, friends.

We're in for a wild ride.
