The Jazz Age
Bibliography for Luncheon presentation in Philadelphia
United Federation of Doll Clubs Annual Convention
July 15, 2005
The “Jazz Age” extended from 1919 to 1930. It was a time of music, dancing, fast cars and Paris frocks. It was a time for youth, exuberance, short skirts, fringe and swinging beads. The styles of the era were pictured in a program Susan Sirkis presented at the UFDC 2005 National convention. For those who wish to pursue their own study of the period, here is a bibliography for the program. An article by Susan on the period appears in the convention journal, Reflections in Fashion, available from www.ufdc.org.
