Hello! I am Cindy Adelle Richard, and welcome to Adelle Circa 1920. I will start by explaining what the name Adelle Circa 1920 means. Adelle is my middle name, and it fits perfectly with the time period I love the best — the 1920s. I included circa because the things I tend to love the best were invented and/or produced around or about 1920, but I love the 1930s-1940s as well. I am constantly charmed by history, time worn objects, ephemera, stories from the past and so on. For me, exploring history is about knowing myself better and helping others to know themselves better – learning about it and examining it for lessons, solutions, and inspiration.

I am constantly finding great sources of historical inspiration, so I created this blog to collect and share my interesting discoveries with other history lovers. Think of this blog like your all access pass to a Vintage Wonderland with me as your trusty guide. I am also an artist, so I love to share my vintage-inspired watercolor paintings, illustrated journal pages, photography, and mini-stories + poems inspired by my visual work. I hope you find loads of inspiration while venturing through my blog.

Thank you for visiting Adelle Circa 1920.

    1. I read an excerpt from your story about the speakeasy – very interesting; I would love to read more. I have not published yet but I am currently working on getting some things published – I will be sure to share them when I do.
