Everything’s New: Baltimore in the Roaring Twenties
January 6 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm$10 | Register
During the decade of the 1920s, Baltimore was a boom town. Throughout the decade, life in Baltimore was changing, as its people and commerce adapted themselves to new social trends, new employment opportunities, and exciting new technologies. In almost every year of the decade, a new and significant business opened or expanded. Commerce, industry and jobs for the city’s residents underwent dynamic changes as Baltimoreans listened to Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong on the radio and danced the Foxtrot and Charleston. Join Baltimore Heritage and the Garrett Jacobs Mansion for a talk by historian Jack Burkert as he walks through this fascinating time of change in Baltimore.
