It would be remembered with great nostalgia and sadness by those who survived World War I. Let's check in on what was happening during that time:
Coco Chanel had just opened up a second store in Paris, on the Rue Cambon...where there is a Chanel store even today.
Oskar Kokoschka, the painter, was finishing up his masterpiece, Bride of the Wind.
Sigmund Freud was writing his paper, "On Narcissim."
It was a beautiful June--but little did the peoples of Europe realize that by the end of the summer, over half a million Europeans would be dead and wounded in the opening month of the Great War.
