After Dark Blog

A journal of the nocturnal adventures of Fynes Harte-Harrington exploring the myriad delights of nightlife in London and Paris, and elsewhere, in the Jazz Age of the 1920s.

There is a story thread running through which binds the narrative with an immense cast of famous and fictious characters and much detail about frocks, frolics, stage shows, cabarets, dancing, music, jazz bands, restaurants, silent films, exotic locations, gossip and not least of all romance!

This is an area of the 1920s that has been completely neglected and much of the information has never appeared in print before so the blog uncovers a hidden social history, primarily of cabaret and entertainment. It is also relevant and timely because of the current vogue for ballroom dancing and cabaret.

The intention is to provide a valuable resource about the Jazz Age that will show what fun life must have been like in the period – if you had a big cheque book and diamonds of course!
