Overview

The 1920s were one of the wildest decades in Canada’s history, a time of frivolous fads, shocking crimes, and political and social changes that definitively yanked the country out of the 19th century and into the modern age. In Strange Days, Ted Ferguson revisits dozens of stories that could only have happened in the ’20s — tales of serial killers, athletes, con men, crackpots, prime ministers, bathing beauties, and more — all of them nearly too amazing to believe and too entertaining to be forgotten.
