So much happened in the 1920s that changed the world forever. The invention of Penicillin and insulin and the Band Aid for starters.
The art-deco movement and Bauhaus flourishes in the 1920s. Robert Goddard creates a liquid-fuelled rocket that will eventually take us to the moon. Automobiles come of age with the mass production of the Model T-Ford. Traffic lights changed cities and city streets in 1923. Radio broadcasting and the mass production of radios took music to every house and every living room and JAZZ music ignited clubs and dance-floors alike. The Charleston becomes a dance movement and fashion takes off worldwide. Kitchens get refrigerators, dishwashers, toasters and we never look back.
When you look into our past you soon realise that, historically, the 1920s was also a critical decade for The Blue Mountains; becoming a desirable destination for artists and holiday makers alike.
Did you know that the story of the Three Sisters originated in the 1920s?
