Cue the music, Maestro

The 1920s, flappers, gangsters,and prohibition; it was the era that saw the birth of flagpole-sitting, barnstorming, and speakeasies. Before the decade was out an Italian immigrant named Charles Ponzi would give his name to one of history’s greatest hustles, and a former airmail pilot named Charles Lindbergh, would complete the most legendary solo flight of all time.

Here then is a collection of Zootopia Fanart, dedicated to those bygone days.

Enjoy…and don’t forget to show the original artists some love by clicking on the source links.

Get your art after the break!

I have no idea as to whether or not the animal to whom Judy is reading the Riot Act is a real species, but this is such a dead-on rendition of a 20s-era police photograph, it had to be included.
