Roaring Twenties


The Roaring Twenties refers to the North American time period of the 1920s, which has been described as one of the most colorful decades in American history. The decade encapsulates a fascinating story, beginning with the return of young soldiers from the fronts of the World War I and emergence of a new and confident face of modern womanhood, and ending with the sad note of the Black Tuesday, harbinger of the Great Depression. The years of the Roaring Twenties were marked by several inventions, and discoveries of far-reaching consequences; emergence of unprecedented industrial boom, and accelerated consumer demand and aspirations, coupled with significant changes in the lifestyle; and a series of events, national as well as international, which shaped a large part of the history of the 20th century.
