In the 20's radium was a cure-all from everything from asthma to kidney problems. No doubt the ultra-modern Jay Gatsby would have jumped on the craze, as did a like-minded real life sport named Eben Byers. Byersdrank a bunch of radium-infused water for that extra vim and vigor and ended up being buried in a lead-lined coffin after his jaw fell off.

In the 20's, there were no hard and fast rules for how to get your hair blonde at a salon. So if you wanted to look like Carrie Mulligan, you did whatJean Harlow'shairdresser did: combine a bunch of stuff including Clorox bleach with ammonia. Sure, any high school chemistry teacher can tell you that makes a poisonous gas, sure it made Harlow's hair fall out and she died at 26 of kidney complications. But it also makes a star-quality platinum shade of blonde.

Bound to put all the mixology blogs with Gatsby-themed cocktails to shame, Harrods' department store is temporarily changing their wine shop to a speakeasy called, "Cocktails and All That Jazz" and serving prohibition-era drinks.

Touted as a cough supressant for adults and babies, this cough syrup was outlawed in the US in 1911, but wasn't taken off the shelves in the UK till 1930. However, morphine cough syprup is still available in England, so if you're across the pond, grab a bottle, head to a theater and enjoy Gatsby in the spirit it was intended to capture, knocked up on good ol' fashioned morphine.
