Rewind – Three Things – Conclusion

Sheiks and Shebas, welcome back.  It’s time to conclude this rewind of our first “interactive” serial!  It was fun romping through the Roaring Twenties with you in 2014.  I’ve met many new friends that I treasured right away.  Just as importantly, old friends stuck around too.  I hope our serial’s family grows even more in 2015. … More Rewind – Three Things – Conclusion

Three Things Serial: 21 – Underwear, Tasteless, Limestone

When I researched ways to illustrate this episode I noticed that media topics of interest in the 1920s were much the same as they are now.
