There was the end of World War I and the economy was booming trying to feed and supply the rest of the World then the farmers lost business when production overseas cut the need for their products and they lost their farms due to over extending their line of credit. Also Stock was vastly over priced and it crashed on Oct 29,1929 Black Friday..then the Banks failed But the roaring twenties was the Jazz Age and lots of people had extra money to spend in this decade after World War ONE Jazz was the only real music of the people and 100% American made The Jazz Singer with Al Jolson was the first Talkie Henry Ford paid his worker the unheard of salary of $5. more
