Flamers made the most of flapping, flapping in a way that was expressive and fun to do. They flapped in such a way that they would “wiggle” about, or flapper into each other and so forth. When the band was on the road, as some of the flappers had already demonstrated to the public in the streets, they would stand on the street corners and say things like, “Let’s meet in the middle of a crosswalk and hold hands!” (Note: the actual term for this would be “crosswalk dance.”) This was quite a popular movement.
The most celebrated flapper was probably Clara Barton, a 17th century flapper known to have had her own salon in London and who was so well respected she was invited to dance in the Court and State balls. She was so well received that when the court called to see her, the courtiers would have flicked her to make sure she would be coming in gracefully.
Another famous flapper was Mary, a famous flapper who was famous for flapping her mouth around and making her mouth move. Mary was very famous and is still quite well known. The flapping that she did on her lips was so impressive that it led to the popular use of flapping in all manner of public places such as the opera and the street.
Some of the Flappers who had a career in the courts and clubs were Lady Edith and Mary Stewart, whose flotation was so popular they even had a newspaper article on the subject printed about it – as “What is it I am seeing on my lips?”
The women who flapped themselves were quite a different person to what we tend to recall of today. Many of the women we know today – like Mary Stewart and Mary Eddy, were very active in their own lives. (Remember – there were just over 200 women who were flappers when the movement was first started. By the 1980s, there were over 1,000 women flappers worldwide!) As many as half of the women who flapped themselves at the time of Queen Elizabeth died, and most of the women who were flapped died of various causes of the disease tuberculosis, which was widespread in the flappers’ community. If all these women had lived long enough to see Queen Elizabeth crowned Queen of England (1714-1801), then they most likely would have been celebrated and recognized as Queenes.
