    The Roaring 20's didn't roar for everyone.
    You can depict gang fights, the Wall Street Crash of 1929

    What about wacky advertisements like babies selling cigarettes or cats selling liquor and stove polish?
    I'm always up for a trade; let me know if you're interested!

    If the advertisements were from the 1920's, GREAT......

    Historical events in the 1920's make GREAT ATCs for this swap.

    Remember,
    On May 21, 1927, the aviator Charles A. Lindbergh landed his Spirit of St. Louis near Paris, completing the first solo airplane flight across the Atlantic Ocean. Lindbergh was just 25 years old when he completed the trip.

    There were some classic children's books written in the 20's. My first card is a tribute to "The Velveteen Rabbit", written in 1922 by Margery Williams, illustrated by William Nicholson. My 2nd card is a flapper girl with her cat.

    Two more cards for the Roaring 20's swap: "Winnie-the-Pooh" by A.A. Milne was written in 1926, and a collection of some of my favorite 1920's advertisements I came across while googling.
