Project 52: The "Eyes" of March

    This week all "eyes" were on Anthony.
   The 1920's were a decade unlike any other.  For the first time in America more people lived in cities than on farms.  Many Americans had extra money to spend.  They bought ready-to-wear clothing and home appliances like electric refrigerators and radios.  People enjoyed going to the movies.  Cars were big.  Penicillin was discovered.   It was a time of prohibition and speakeasies.  Anthony is studying the roaring twenties.  As part of a project he had to dress up as though he lived in the 1920's.
     He was pretty excited when we put the whole costume together.
     From the hat on his head to the shoes on his feet we were able to capture the era in style.
     He will remember how much fun he had with this for the rest of his life.
     The "eyes" have it!

The Roaring 20's was my favorite era to study in History class. Such a fun and exciting time! I totally could have been a flapper girl. I love the costume you found for Anthony, he really embodies that time period perfectly. I love your shots this week.
