The youtube channel below is perfect for finding a 'salon' piano piece for background music.

A few sample tracks:

Franz Hitz : Dans les Blés (In the wheat-fields) - Paysannerie, Op.199

Carl Bohm : Jäger's Gruss (Huntsman's greeting), Op.309

and something for those moments when players are not paying attention...

Yoko Kanno : Tell me what the rain knows (Arr for piano solo by Joshua C. Agarrado)

Radiation, it's good for what ails you..... :cthulhu1:

The site linked to below contains a fair selection of dubious devices from periods covering the Gaslight era to the 1960's and beyond guaranteed to give characters a healthy green glow (Well, apart from the Radol, which gave the user a blue glow...).

Oak Ridge Associated Universities: Radioactive Quack Cures ... kcures.htm

And remember, for only $49.95 plus postage and handling I:
Am happy to ship your instrument today. Express prepaid and insured. The radium content is well shielded in lead to absorb all alpha and beta rays and while there could be a small amount of gamma rays come through, they are only stimulating and not of any consequence...

This food history blog acually covers a wider time period than the 1920's dealing with recipies and historic menus all the way back to the 13th Century, but it is a wonderful resource for shipboard menus, and other shall we say more dubious fare, such as liquor that falls outside the category of "any port in a storm"...
Artificial Port Wine.
The Russians make their port wine thus:- Cider three quarts, French brandy one quart, gum kino one drachm. And the French restaurateurs imitate successfully old hock by the following mixture: Cider three quarts, French brandy one quart, alcoholized nitric ether one drachm.

Very likely that some of these links are going to end up in our Card Catalog segment. Awesome finds, thanks for digging!

Here is another site that might be worthy of a mention. is a site containing various military history documents inluding a page which covers interwar military planning by the United States.

The front page is linked at:

The interwar section is at:

There is also a section on the Cold War era 'Aggressor Force' that was used between 1947(ish) and 1978 (When it was replaced with OPFOR.). The earliest version of it (Between 1947ish and sometime prior to 1959) is clearly based on the idea that the Nazis rise again. While this falls outside the 1920's it's utility for a Delta Green based campaign should be obvious...

The website of the society dedicated to preserving the history of airships as used by Great Britain. Details on both the R.100 & R.101, plus the routes that would have been flown had things gone differently. Perfect for any keeper wishing to add airships to Masks or any other classic era campaign.

A 1922 book about the history and design of mazes found on Project Gutenberg. An annotated copy of the text would make for an interesting prop.

Mazes and Labyrinths by W. H. Matthews (1922)
