Eyeglasses in the context of the past era. Elegant 1930.
1930 began with the global crisis. The symbol of fashion in the era crisis was long skirts, which "came down" immediately after the collapse of the New York Stock Exchange. Perhaps the same can be said about the wearing eyewear. Eyeglasses were, if not the symbol, then at least witnessed the era, and you will learn about it from this part of the article.
"Jazz Age ended October 29"
(This phrase is attributed to American writer Scott Fitzgerald (Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald, 1896-1940).)
"Golden twentieth", also called the century of jazz, ended October 29, 1929, in the same ill-fated "Black Tuesday", when on the New York Stock Exchange Dow Jones and stock prices plummeted catastrophically. Their fall marked the end of a brief financial well-being and the beginning of the Great Depression. (Although the date of the end of the Great Depression in America is 1933, which launched the new economic policies of Franklin Roosevelt, the echoes of the crisis is clearly felt by the end of the thirties.) After a few months after the incident in the stock market an unemployment began to take rampant. If workers are living "paycheck to paycheck," just lost their livelihoods, the middle class in addition to lost work and even their life savings. People are rapidly got impoverished. And was the only one entertainment is available to many, a kind of pill against of depression, which allowed at least for a time to forget the harsh reality and add bright colors in a faded commonness. It was a cinema. In a crisis, it was intended to support the spirit and restore hope and I must say, has successfully coped with this task.
