Time Trippers: The Nights of the Round Table – Capturing the Spirit of the Twenties:   Leave a comment

Capturing the Spirit of the Twenties! (One had to know where to go, the password or if all else fails, ask a cop where a fella can get a drink) From January 1924 issue of ‘Judge’ magazine – the top humor magazine of the ’20’s:

Calvin Coolidge seen as a Progressive!

'Silent' Calvin Coolidge a Progressive!

‘Silent’ Calvin Coolidge a Progressive!

Cartoon from the January, 1924 issue of ‘Judge’ showing Silent Cal as a progressive, far from his historic reputation as a do-nothing president. Judge was a liberal magazine and apparently looked on the new president as something of a progressive in his unsuccessful attempt to build a St. Lawrence Seaway and cooperative hydro-electric power sharing with Canada. He was an honest, true hands-off president, a believer in free market economics and low taxes (he lowered taxes dramatically in 1925) leading to unparalleled prosperity – and  with capitalism unfettered – eventually the Great Depression. But even though I’m a Democrat, I have always respected and admired died-in-the-wool solid Republicans like Cal and Eisenhower.
To find out more, and have some fun along the way, take a walk back in time with us to the last week of September, 1927 to see Babe Ruth hit his record-breaking 60th home run. Hang out with the incomparably witty Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley and Harpo Marx. Meet Dorothy’s friend, F. Scott Fitzgerald; run into a young and as yet unknown James Cagney, Ben ‘Bugsy’ Siegel, a certain Japanese Navy midshipman and many others.
If you liked ‘Midnight in Paris’ or ‘Boardwalk Empire’ and enjoy Jack Finney’s ‘Time and Again,’ then you might like this book too! Enjoy! Available on Amazon both Paperback and Kindle editions!
