Twenties Style

Social mores change rapidly in the twenties. Women in bathing suits compete in a beauty contest. Four women sit together on a bench. One smokes, the others put on makeup and all showoff their bare, but painted, legs. Flappers dance the Charleston. Others show off gauzy dresses. A pair of women dance with abandon.
