When Glamour,Crime & Jazz went hand in hand.

Hitting our TV screens in early February is the long awaited and eagerly anticipated Boardwalk Empire:
This incredibly slick drama is set in Atlantic City during the Roaring Twenties and the Era of Prohibition this series is one that I will for one will not to be missing.

Boardwalk Empire

Although it is ascetically set  around the real life figure of corrupt politician Enoch "Nucky" Johnson who worked for / with the Mafia keeping the liquor flowing and his long term relationship with Margret Schroeder a wife abused by her husband. it is about so much more.

It is about the amazing and often colourful people that made Atlantic City what it was.

This is the Original Human Cannon Ball at Atlantic City Pier
DC0910AC J Boardwalk Empire: Vintage Atlantic City Design
and below is it as featured in Broadwalk Empire.

If you love this Era then I am sure you will be left drooling, no expenses has been spared, the costumes are to die for and the sets are staggering.

Just what the Doctor ordered on a cold February Night me thinks Chin Chin........
