New Posting Series: Resource Spotlight

Looking for some fun, new, or terribly odd errata from the 1920s?

In this new series, I’ll be putting a spotlight on some of the stranger materials I come across while digging through online databases on various topics related to the 1920s. Each resource will always be a primary source (i.e., printed during the Roaring Twenties), and it will always be something that can be accessed in FULL—for FREEonline, without any passwords or accounts.  While I can’t always promise these sources will relate to Chicago history, I promise they’ll always be interesting! 🙂

First up in the series: A tongue-in-cheek cookbook from 1922, written “by men for men”…which acts as a veritable Who’s Who of the 1920s.

Tune in next week for the first post in this new series, Resource Spotlight!

About lupachi1927

My name's Megan, and I'm a writer with an interest in history. While I might not be a real historian, I'm a very thorough researcher. This blog is my place to post about all the interesting historical tidbits I find that can't use in the novel I'm working on, which takes place in Chicago in 1927. If you're looking for research help, writing feedback, or just want to say hi, feel free to drop me a line! :)
