Decadence and Change: 1920's by Jonathan Bastable
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is the 20s call to mind images of flappers and P G Wodehouse's "Jeeves and Wooster". But although Britain had 'bright young things' determined to emulate America's 'Roaring Twenties', the general mood was more sober. In 1921, a compromise treaty gave Ireland independence, with the except of Ulster which remained British. Four years after the Great War's end, one in five men were out of work. Labour went from fledgling political party to government in 1924, but could not hold on to power. In 1926, the nation went on general strike. But a new institution was brightening up ordinary lives: the BBC began broadcasting radio entertainment right into people's homes. More than 6 million listened to the King's speech, the first royal broadcast to the nation, broadcast from the Empire Exhibition of 1924. This was the decade that the twin towers became part of the Wembley skyline. Built for the Exhibition, the stadium was completed in time to stage the FA cup final the previous year.
