the roaring twenties1

“It was an era of new prosperity…. A social and cultural revolution was evident in the new clothing styles, changes in mass entertainment, growth of spectator sports, increasing leisure, and mobility… Canada was evolving towards political independence….

  • Yet the twenties was also a decade of trouble and contradiction. The prosperity was not shared by all….Immigrants continued to come [and] found unexpected prejudices….Differences in attitudes and values developed between young and old… [and] youth responded to the new industrial culture brought to them by advertising, radio, jazz, films, and the automobile.”
  • In short, for many the decade offered cause for celebration; for others, the “Roaring Twenties” would not live up to the hype.

the context

The year is 1927 and the Liberal government of Mackenzie King has decided to celebrate the success of Canada as a newly recognized country on the international scene. The celebration will take the form of a two day exposition, with keynote speakers, presenters, displays and entertainment, the purpose of which will be to both educate and entertain. It will certainly be an opportunity to showcase the accomplishments of the young nation and its people.

  • Like with any exposition focusing on national accomplishments, there will be protests from individuals and groups who may not share the same optimism for the state of the country.
