It's what happened in
America in the '20s
While Josephine Baxter-Browne's adventures weave through the turbulent 1920s,
1929 An Upper Class Affair is a story that will make a new generation aware of the excitement, culture and history of a time past. The Jazz Age Lives On in our memory and creates a pattern many of us continue to recreate. We are posting important videos of the era and hope that you will be inspired, on this 80th Anniversary of the 1929 Stock Market Crash, to write down and share your own stories of the Twenties on our blog.
