    I thnk of Jazz music, of the great Jazz musicians and singers like Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, King Oliver, Mamie Smith, Bessie Smith, who made a great impact in this decade. And the dancer Josephine Baker, who caused a sensation in Paris when she went there with the Revue Negre.

    And the cinema, with its great silent stars who were adored by the moviegoing public, the great Douglas Fairbanks, athlete as well as actor, Mary Pickford, Lillian and Dorothy Gish, Tallulah Bankhead, Clara Bow, Theda Bara,Charlie Chaplin etc.

    That was the time when they invented automobile, radio, airplanes. The peanut butter and jelly sandwich became famous in 1922. My thought i just think of black and white, fancy cars, classical music, and women in fancy dresses.
