I'll go along with Hillbilly on the rum running
I'd have been a gun moll or gang leader such as Ma Barker.
My one Grandmother was in bootlegging, but she was just a "middleman" of sorts and not really all that into the business.
I also like the 1930s and 40s as I like Art Deco and Art Nouveau and I like the clothes and cars from this era.
I love all the old movies with Betty Davis, Joan Crawford, Garbo, all the old greats.
I think this would've been an interesting time to live in.
But I can still find Art Deco and Nouveau things, I have many antiques such as these in my home, and I look fantastic in the old style suits - I have
slim hips and broad shoulders - so this style of clothing looks good on me. I also look good in hats. I love hats!
How great it would've been to hang around in the Jazz clubs and speakeasies......
I am a lifelong Chicagoan also - and back in these days - Chi Town was THE place to be! I love to watch the local PBS shows about this era, the
clothes, the clubs, the gangster speakeasies, all the great jazz.......
Born too late.
Will try to find some of these documentaries on Chicago in the 30s and 40s. Really great stuff.
