Fads & Fashion Of The 1930s
During the 1930s citizens were plagued with economical hardships.
In order to keep children entertained, they were forced to be creative in the way they spent time instead of money.
Here are some well-known fads created in the 1930s:
Drive-in Movie Theaters
Women's Clothing in the 1930's
Cowl Neckline- A draped neckline that falls into soft folds.(Calasibetta,117)
Slacks- Pants that became popular for women in the 1930's.(Calasibetta,133)
Bare Midriff Look- Originated look that came from a two piece dress. The top ending at the ribs or bust, and pants or skirt worn at the waistline. (Calasibetta,101)
Calf Length- A skirt or a dress that is worn below the knee. (Calasibetta)
Culottes- Any kind of pants designed to look like a skirt. (Calasibetta,)
Skirts were frequently longer in the back than the front. (Thomas)
The war brought the idea of low heels and square shoulders. (Thomas)
Dinner wear included a dress coat or the increasingly popular dinner jacket
The jacket was worn over matching trousers or flannels, or over knickerbockers or shorts that tapered just over the knee for golfing, hunting, or shooting
The loose-fitting, belted tweed Nor-folk jacket with pleats was popular for leisure wear
Working-class men wore simpler versions of the clothes that upper-class men wore

Monopoly became a raging sensation by creator Charles B. Darrow in 1934.
Many say it was another copy of the creation Landlord by Lizzie J. Magie
Both games had connections of the true meaning "Poverty and Progress"
Darrow revealed his game to the famous Parker Brothers, an American toy and game company.
Sadly, his offer was turned down for having to many fundamental errors.
Darrow never gave up. He decided to make 5,000 copies of the game and sell them to all his friends and family.
He then sold them to a store in Philadelphia. Parker Brothers then became aware of this phenomenon and rethought the idea in 1935.
Parker Brothers introduced this game and 20 thousand sets were sold that week.
Workingmen wore detachable scuffs clipped by studs to protect their shirts form ink or city grime
Middle-and-upper-class office workers wore tunic-style white shirts with stiff, detachable high collars made of white linen or, for the less affluent, celluloid
Silk ties rested under the collar and were tied with a classic triangle-shaped knot
Shirt and cufflinks were of mother-of-pearl or onyx

Drive-in Movie Theaters
A young man by the name of Richard Hollingshead started the sensation of drive-in movie theaters in the 1930s.
Hollingshead first experimented with a drive-in theater in his back yard.
He began by placing an old Kodak Projector on the hood of his car. The projector projected onto a screen nailed to a tree.
As a young sales manager he decided to expand his goal. He aired his first movie on a Tuesday of June 6, 1933 in Camden, New Jersey
The cost was 25 cents per car as well as 25 cents per person.
It became an immediate success for Hollingshead.
He went on to establish a drive in movie theater franchise throughout the United States.
