    1. I love reading about flappers running wild in the 20's, especially such beautiful bobbed haired twins! I wish more details were avaiable, but it seems like their history wasn't documented very well. Amazing story, though! To be honest, much of the famous flapper stories are similar, but you can always chalk up your knowledge on their surrounding influences (famous people and otherwise) from the 20's and connect the history bit by bit. I love it! Thanks for letting me borrow it, Chantel!
