    Inventions, Innovations, News Events and Discoveries of THE ROARING TWENTIES, Due May 14, 2021



    This is a swap about the "Roaring 20's", and what made the 1920's ROAR.
    A century ago America experienced a single decade that changed the nation forever.

    It is MORE than the FASHIONS of the 1920's, although the clothes of the rich and the spender displayed at parties and in the speakeasies were gorgeous!
    (If you are interested in the fashion of the 1920's, the cloche hats, bobbed hair, fedoras and spats, I am running another swap for that specifically.)

    It is more than the PEOPLE of the 1920's, although they were all interesting folk.
    (If you are interested in the people, the aviators, the movie stars or the sports heroes of the 1920's, I am running another swap for them specifically.)

    The 20's were a decade of unbelievable discoveries, with a plethora of incredible inventions and staggering innovations.
    (Going through the lists of inventions, I am surprised to see listed the "invention" of penicillin in 1928, and the "invention" of insulin, which is the reason why I am lumping inventions and discoveries together. Penicillin was discovered, insulin was isolated.)
    For inventions in the 1920's:http://www.american-historama.org/19...-the-1920s.htm

    There were innovations in the storage of food, progressing from delivered chunks of ice (to the home ice-box), to the frozen inventions from Bird Eye. There were candy inventions and innovations from Milton S. Hershey, who went crazy with new tastes and flavors in candy. There were inventions in health care products, and discoveries in germ warfare and bacteria immunity.

    There were unbelievable discoveries, shocking news, and memorable events: the discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamen and his famous golden mask; the climbing of the Woolworth Building that got more publicity than climbing Mount Everest; and the stock market crash, the Australian icons that started in the 1920's, The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) that was formed February 1, 1920. (Don't you just love those bright red Mountie uniforms?) Route 66 was established, and the creation of the BWCA gave us a gorgeous, public, place to canoe and enjoy Nature.

    Create three or six ATC's (no APC's allowed) representing something that happened 1920 through 1929, things that made the Roaring 20's ROAR.......




    * This is a 3 for 3 or 6 for 6 card trade. Make 3 or 6 cards and receive the same number back.

    * ALL mediums and techniques are welcome. Please make sure you add some depth to your cards, whatever style you choose. Your mediums can include, but are not limited to: paper, tissue paper, crayon, acrylic, watercolor, gel pens, colored pencil, rubber stamping, ink, newspaper clippings, magazine clippings, etc. Please do not take an image, cut it out, glue it to a card, and call it done. Color the background. Add some texture. Add more than one image. Make the ATC YOUR CREATION! Please send in your best work. Something you would not be disappointed in receiving if it was sent to you.

    * Please sign up by posting to this thread. I will acknowledge you and add your user name to the participant list below.
    * ONLY ATCs allowed. No APCs accepted.
    * All cards need to be sent each in their own plastic sleeve.
    * All cards need to be standard ATC size: 2.5” x 3.5”
    * All cards need to be sturdy enough to earn the name “card” (no floppy or flimsy paper). If it is created on a single sheet of paper, and "flimsy", please back your ATC with something stiffer, or more firm, such as a cereal box.
    * Just as important, check for cards that are too thick. Each card must still be capable of fitting into the standard ATC sleeve. If your ATC will not fit into an ATC sleeve, it is too bulky.
    * Please put the Swap name and your Username on the back of all cards. And please write clearly on everything!
    .....We can't give you itrades and/or You Rock! points if we don't know who you are.
    * Please confirm there is enough postage on both the envelope you send to me, and the envelope I need to send back to you.
    * If you are unsure about mailing ATCs, or just may want to pick up some good tips for shipping, here is a great link. http://atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=909

    * If you are inside the U.S., please include a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches, with 55 cents postage, or one "Forever" stamp if trading 3 cards; or one forever and one 15 cent stamp (additional ounce postage) if trading 6 cards, OR if your cards are extra heavy or extra bulky (or 2 forever stamps if that is easier).

    * International participants, if you have U.S. funds, or U.S. postage, it is greatly appreciated. However, since many of you do not have access to U.S. stamps/money, I will cover your postage. Please include a self addressed envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches (10 x 28 cm), or if you do not have the correct size envelope, please include a large mailing label with your address and I will provide the envelope.

    * I apologize for being so demanding about the envelope size, but the postal rates in the US charge extra for thickness. When cards are stacked, or overlapped, in (a smaller) envelope, it almost always costs more to mail. If you send me a small envy, the cards get stacked. When I use the 4 inch by 9 1/2 inch business size envelopes, I can spread the cards over the area, making a THIN package, and only pay for basic (minimum) postage.

    * Cards are due IN MY HANDS by May 14, 2021. Please allow sufficient lead time for cards to get to me, particularly if you are an International participant. Returns will be mailed promptly. Please leave iTrader for your host ONLY (me) when you receive your returns and please take the time to leave Reputation/You Rock points for your fellow players from whom you receive cards.

    * A hostie card in this theme is appreciated but not at all expected!

    * Thank you for considering this swap! If you have my address from previous swaps, it hasn't changed. If you are new, or have not been in one of my swaps for a while, please PM me for my address when you sign up or when you are ready to mail.

    * Above all ~Have fun!!!

    I plan to do several swaps covering the Roaring 20's -- The decade from 1920 to 1929.
    The first Swap is "FASHION OF THE ROARING TWENTIES" -- clothes, hats, headbands, shoes, jewelry.
    The second Swap is devoted to the "INVENTIONS, INNOVATIONS, AND DISCOVERIES OF THE ROARING TWENTIES"
    -- new and improved food products, advances in science and medicine, Egyptian Discoveries

    The third Swap includes "PEOPLE OF THE ROARING TWENTIES" -- who they were, what they did, books they wrote, changes they made.

    I hope you sign up for the entire series.

    I LOVE the Roaring 20's.
    It was an exciting age of invention and discoveries.
    It was a series of "Firsts".
    It was a time of mind-blowing events.
    It was a decade that altered the world.

    Electric Automatic Traffic Signal...."Modern" Traffic Lights
    Quick-Frozen Food. ...
    Band-AidŽ ...
    Aerosol Can ...

    Other exciting Inventions in the 1920s

    Cheese Burger
    Radio Altimeter

    On the other hand, the Baby Ruth bar and Wonder Bread were both invented in 1920, Popsicles came out in 1924, Hostess cakes and Kool-Aid were products of 1927 and Velveeta cheese was introduced in 1928.

    WOW!!!!

    Pop Up Toaster Invented 1920
    .....Better than toasting bread slices on a stick
    over an open fire
    .....Variable timer and springs prevent burnt toast
    .....Remember Hugh Jackman and Meg Ryan in a
    Movie called "Kate and Leopold", 2001
    .....Leopold invents a variable timer for making
    the perfect (unburnt) English Muffin for Kate
    .....However, Leopold is from 1876, 44 years prior
    to the invention of the popup toaster
    .....But remember, this is a romantic fantasy movie,
    a very good one, by the way


    img088.jpg
    Band Aid Invented October 10, 1920
    .....Invented by Earl Dickson, an employee of
    Johnson and Johnson
    .....Invented for his wife who frequently cut and
    burned herself while cooking

    1928 -- Penicillin Discovered
    .....Returning from holiday on September 3, 1928, Dr. Alexander Fleming discovered a blob of mold—later identified as a
    rare strain of Penicillium notatum—that inhibited bacterial growth.
    Before the introduction of Penicillin there was no effective treatment for infections such as pneumonia, gonorrhea or rheumatic fever. Hospitals were full of people with blood poisoning contracted from a cut or a scratch, and
    doctors could do little for them but wait and hope.
    .....Some sources say Penicillin was "invented" by Doctor Flemming. I wonder what Mr. Penicillium M. Notatum
    would say to that

    img053.jpg
    1925 -- Hershey's Bottled Chocolate Syrup
    .....Before the introduction of Hershey's convenient
    bottled chocolate syrup, pharmacists would mix their
    own chocolate syrup from cocoa powder to mask the
    bitter taste of medicine

    Event: World's Fair held in France 1925

    Milton S. Hershey creates alternative recipe for Milk Chocolate
    .....Through trial and error, Hershey created his own formula for milk chocolate (previously a closely guarded Swiss recipe).
    .....He formed bite-sized morsels of chocolate with a distinctive conical shape, sometimes described as flat-bottomed teardrops.
    .....Hershey called them "Kisses"
    .....Hershey then wrapped each Hershey Kiss in squares of lightweight aluminum foil
    .....Hershey Kisses were originally wrapped individually BY HAND.
    .....Imagine how long it would take to wrap (by hand) the 80 MILLION Hershey Kisses made EACH DAY (today)


    img052.jpg
    1921 -- Milton S. Hershey had a MONSTER Idea to improve the lowly chocolate bit
    .....As volume increased, Hershey Kisses no longer wrapped by hand
    .....1921 -- Machine wrapping introduced
    .....1921 -- As part of the wrapping process, a small paper ribbon was added to the top of each foil-wrapped Chocolate
    .....It is unbelievable how this tiny scrap of paper dramatically increased the sales of these cone shaped candies !


    img054.jpg
    1924 -- Paper Plumes on top of the candies now trademarked for the Hershey Kisses
    .....New Tag-Line: "Make my Kisses Chocolate"
    .....Kisses can be purchased in bags, in bulk, and they can be "PERSONALIZED" for weddings, graduations, birthdays

    Additional 1920's Inventions

    img052.jpg
    1927 -- S'Mores
    .....The first documented (cooked over an open campfire) S'Mores
    recipe comes from the Girl Scouts of America 1927 Handbook
    .....The recipe uses the same ingredients we use today:
    Marshmallows, Graham Crackers, and a Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar

    img018.JPG
    1900 -- HERSHEY'S MILK CHOCOLATE BAR
    .....Created in 1900
    .....Before the Hershey's Bar, Milk Chocolate was a recipe
    closely guarded by, and proprietary to, the Swiss

    1925 -- Milton S. Hershey invented the Mr. Goodbar candy bar

    .....According to the chemist who helped develop the bar, Milton was hard of hearing.
    .....During taste tests, when a company executive said "That's a good bar", Mr. Hershey heard
    "Mister Good Bar ", and the name stuck
    .....The "Mr. GoodBar Chocolate (with peanuts) bar" was originally released under the fictitious
    "Chocolate Sales Corporation" Logo

    Sorry, I got stuck on Chocolate (No Pun Intended)
    Hershey's bars are 30% off, plus the store is running a BOGO (Buy 5, get 5 FREE)
    so I bought "a few" candy bars.....

    And I had to taste them to see if they were on sale for being OLD, but they are nice and fresh.
    Or the first one was fresh, perhaps I need to test another ?????
