    people used to dance for a self security method. Wars were going on at the time and the only way for them to relax and express the suppressed emotions was to dance. Dancing was used for a different purpose back in the 1920's and 1930's then what we use today. Today, we dance to impress, to pick up girls, to show some sort of social coolness about us, and to have fun. Back then, they danced to relieve stress, be romantic, or to have fun.

    The Charleston dance became popular after appearing along with the song, "The Charleston," by James P. Johnson in the Broadway musical Runnin' Wild in 1923. The Charleston dance took a booming popularity to the public afterwards and branched out to form other dances such as tango, swing dancing, lindy hop, and many more. {4541880734.jpg} The Lindy Hop being performed.

    In 1913 Ford started massproduction of cars. Five years later the first truck was built. One of the famous car models was from Tin Lizzy, the T-Modell was built between 1908 and 1927 and over 15 million examples were sold. The car that was sold the most is the vw-kaefer.
    There was also a big change on the roads. Roads that had been designed for horse transport began to deteriorate under the steadily increasing load of traffic. In 1927 the State governments supplied about 37 per cent., the Federal Government 10 per cent, and the local governments 53 per cent. While horse-drawn traffic prevailed, roads were used for local administration. Roads had to be redesigned and rebuilt to accommodate the automobile, new road rules had to be introduced, standardized road signs erected, and methods of controlling traffic (for example traffic lights) implemented in densely populated areas.

    The German automobile industry tumbled as the worlds economy folded during the late 1920s and early 1930s when the Great Depression raged on. This was a sad day indeed for the history of German automobiles. After the Great Depression had subsided, only twelve automakers in Germany survived. That small group included Opel, Fords Cologne factory and Daimler-Benz of out of an astonishing total of 86 automobile companies operating before the Depression. Also, four of Germanys top auto manufacturers-Dampf Kraft Wagen, Horch, Audi and Wanderer-came together in a joint venture to form the Auto Union. This Union would play a significant part to lead Germany back from their troubles with the depression

    Since the 1920's the magazine vogue has been a cornerstone of the fashion industry for well over 100 years. Under well-known editors like Anna Wintour and Edna Woolman Chase who have influenced fashion readers everywhere around the world. Vogue also had articles on politics, arts and culture consisting of stuff like elections, art around the world and different cultures in america. There where also movie magazines published in the 1920's containing information about movies and stars and there upcoming movies. And there where also magazines published about dance and good housekeeping. These magazines changed the 1920's and 30's in many ways by advertising things like hosiery and makeup to middle class women.
    Magazines would use clever slogans to essentially make the women of this time not feel guilty that they weren't up to par for their husbands. Tabloid papers were created. An example of this was the New York Daily News. It covered everything from crime, sports, to scandals. With new technology advertising reached millions of Americans. Movie stars and athletes were hired to persuade Americans to buy products like coffee or even tobacco.
