Life at play

In the rural areas of the country, entertainment for the most part consisted of storytelling and poetry. Opportunities were few for those who wanted to cultivate other talents. With the formation of urban areas, around new industries, the ground for more diverse recreation was created. Various social activities such as drama, choirs, sports, dances and film screenings marked the lives of the townspeople at the end of the working day.

Cars played a key role in the run. They were both a symbol of status and a declaration of independence. The music in the car was also a certain expression, often played at high volume so that it would be noticed. On the run, the car became a refuge for friendship, everyday responsibilities awaited elsewhere.
