List of slang words with meanings from 20's
« on: March 28, 2014, 04:13:53 AM »

There was a magazine called "Flapper "in the 20's. One issue  contained a flapper's dictionary. Here's photos of the magazine and the whole list of slang words here: http://www2.huhs.org/blogs/gatsbygazette/a-flappers-dictionary/
