             Lifestyles in the Roaring 20s

•   The 1920s was one of the most raucous, boisterous decades in U.S.
    History. Despite the economic & political strife that marked the early
    twenties, by 1923 a new prosperity allowed Americans to enjoy
    luxuries unknown during wartime, & to embrace new forms of
    entertainment, such as radio, sports, jazz music, movies.
•   For much of the decade, American society resembled a boiling kettle,
    fairly bursting with the wailing sounds of jazz, wildly dancing feet, the
    roar of thousands cheering on sports heroes like Babe Ruth, and
    conversations laced with such slang as “banana oil,” “struggle
    buggy,” “sheik,” and “sheba.”

    by less restrictive clothing.
•   Government attempts to regulate drinking through Prohibition laws
    spawned countless illegal bars & organized crime rackets.
•   Sports took prominence in American society as a new brand of
    enthusiasts elevated sports heroes to Olympian magnitude.
