This was the age of prohibition. Prohibition pushed nightlife underground to wild jazz clubs where alcohol and cocaine were the drugs of choice and the party ran all night. This was the backdrop for the emergence of a new type of young girl: flapper girls. Flapper girls were confident, adventurous and wanted to enjoy life. They wore short flashy dresses influenced by Hollywood fashions, had boyish hair cuts, drank alcohol, danced to jazz dance music, smoked cigarettes, drove cars.
