How to Throw a Roaring 1920s Party - As far as food goes, suggestions included deviled eggs, pigs in a blanket, Waldorf salad, finger sandwiches, turkey, spicy beans, potatoes and vegetables. For dessert, a pineapple upside down cake. (This kind of cake was new and very popular back then.)

1913 - After parcel post service was introduced in 1913, at least two children were sent by the service. With stamps attached to their clothing, the children rode with railway and city carriers to their destination. The Postmaster General quickly issued a regulation forbidding the sending of children in the mail after hearing of those examples.
