Moodboard - 1920s

Film adaptation of the novel "The Great Gatsby" Author F. Scott Fitzgerald associated this moment in American history – the Jazz Age – with materialism  and immorality

The 1920 saw the banning of all alcohol, for religious and moral reasons. This allowed men like;

Al (Scarface) Capone to rise up, making fortunes selling illegal alcohol. The government paid agents to enforce the prohibition law, however due to their low salary's they were easily paid off.
