Hi-de-ho and welcome! GreatestGeneration is dedicated to everything that was the 1940s. WWII, Big Band, Jazz, Swing, classic Disney; hell, we'll even throw in The Marx Brothers and Joe Dimaggio in there.

So, all you hep cats, lick your hair and and get ginned up to relive one of the greatest generations America had to offer. Photography, art, literature; anything you have as long as it brings the vintage glamor of war, fashion, music, lifestyle, and all! Let's bring the past back to life.

News and Updates

After a long year of abandonment, I (the original founder) have taken over the group under a new account. I would really like to send my thanks and appreciation for those who stuck with the group and kept to what it was essentially first made for. I would like to apologize for letting such a good idea nearly go to waste by allowing spam to stuff our gallery but I'm going to remedy that very soon!

I have cleaned up and categorized the group as much as I could. I've as well tried to add some kind of structure to it. Let me just voice my disappointment to those people who have used this group as personal advertisement, submitting things that have NOTHING to do with what this group is dedicated to. I've deleted so many things not even remotely close to the 1940s. So much for trusting! Because of that, I have added rules and limitations that will be strongly enforced.

Featured is now closed and removed from the front page due to this. For now, it holds things I haven't sorted through, everything else staying in the group can be found in their appropriate categories.

If you have any suggestions or questions, please let me know in the comments. Your feedback is very much appreciated. I'd like to know how to make this place better and more fun!

Also, if you are interested in becoming an administrator, positions are open Continue reading if you are interested.

Administrators will be in charge of:

:bulletred: Sorting through Featured: deleting things that don't belong in the group, and categorizing
:bulletred: Enforcing submission rules and etiquette
:bulletred: Approving Submissions and providing feedback whether it is 40s material or not.
:bulletred: Organizing events and contests in the near future.

You MUST be able to check the group at least twice a week, and knowledge/affinity for this era is preferred. Since you kept reading, I'm assuming you're interested, so please note FrankieVonDrake!

Don't mind me, I'll be flirting with Bing Crosby. He's such a History lesson. ;P
