  • Pulp era America

    Hi I was wondering if Pulp er America truely was reflected in Pulp stories of the era, I mean America of the time had in background racism and crime did pay. I mean what was shown in Dragnet and the Shadow radio show with it's Crime does not pay is fiction.


    I like to know really what it was like in the Pulp era America,

    Kind of tough to answer not having lived it.

    But apply your question to modern day police dramas. Watching Chicago Hope, Chicago Fire and Chicago Med may not give you an exact image of what Chicago is today. It's only picking certain aspects to spotlight to keep your interest. My guess is that the fiction of the time did much the same.

    You might enjoy this, especially the photographs of ordinary folks.

      I know that Pulp Heroes had to be hard to reflect the times and era,
