1920s Campaign Resources

This is just a list of some of the sites that I tend to use for reference to 1920s era stuff. Most of it is pretty useful, some of it is crap. You decide and leave your favorites behind. I will edit the main post to include the best, so that we can always have a good relevant list of sites for reference.

Re: 1920s Campaign Resources

I typically run an online COC camp for people in the San Francisco Bay Area but one of my players is in Sacramento (2 hours north of SF) so I found these old pictures but I'm sure most of them can be used anywhere in America:

Re: 1920s Campaign Resources

If anyone is looking for a bit more colour on 1920s cruise ships I found this really useful as it contains deck plans, timetables and adverts for the SS Yarmouth running out of Boston to Newfoundland in the 1920s. Although it was non-Atlantic the smaller scale was exactly what I was after as I only used for a one shot and populating and mapping out the mulitple decks of an ocean liner seemed a bit excessive....

Re: 1920s Campaign Resources

Plenty of materials about transatlantic passenger liners from the 1880s (for Gaslight) through the 1920s and a bit beyond can be found here.
Includes brochures produced by the shipping lines, assorted information about life on board and passenger lists which would be handed out so everyone on a voyage knew who else was aboard.
