The 1920's were generally a good time- women began to dress more freely, with lower hemlines (about to the knees at lowest)and the right to drink, smoke, and wear make-up. The 20's were also know as the "Roaring Twenties", and gave way to Jazz Music over classical music. It was only in the 30's that things became bad when the Great Depression struck. Most of the time in the Twneties were filled with dancing to the Charleston and flappers.

No not everyone did. American farmers were especially hit hard.

At the time of the boom, nearly half of the American population lived and worked on farms and other agricultural areas. So, when the boom brought with it technological change closely followed by mass-production and mass-marketing, farmers soon found themselves packing their bags and heading for the ever promising cities. In just the nine year period between 1919 and 1928, farmers income dropped dramatically from $22 billion to just $13 billion. The reasoning behind this catastrophic loss can be put down to several main reasons. World War One had taken it's on Europe and they could no longer afford to continue their American food exports. Their farmers however, benefited from increased amounts of work and produce being required and bought. Another reason for this was that wheat producers in Canada had opted to go down the line of mass-production. This led to their prices falling and they therefore sold much more produce than American farmers. The final real issue that faced the farmers was that of over farming. Some areas in the mid west of America had been farmed to extensive amount which led to them becoming 'Dustbowls', which basically meant unusable desert.

As a result of this farming decline, many of the farmers did pack their bags and leave for the city. For the first time ever, more Americans were living in cities than the countryside.

New immigrants, farmers, African Americans and people in old industries all did not benifit from the boom.

Farmers didn't benefit because the U.S. was hit by overproductino after World War 1.

Industrial works were hurt because wages barely rose and mechanization often replaced skilled workers.

It was the Roaring Twenties and everything looked Rosie. The Great War to End All Wars was over and the boys were home (at least those that were coming home). The Stock Market was in high gear. Farmers were expanding production beyond war year levels. It seemed that everyone was optimistic. Happy Days Were Here Again.

Not all Americans shared in the boom. 40 percent of the American population was living below the poverty line in the 1920's.
