Iconic clothing or accessories for twentieth century...

I've got to come up with 10 or more simple things (accessories, clothing, etc.) that are indicative of each decade from 1910 thru 2010. Can you help?

Imagine ten photographs of people, each with something that would quickly or obviously represent the era in which they're in from 1910 thru 2010. So, a walkman could be 80s, an iPod 2000s, a casio digital watch or mood ring could mean 70s, bellbottoms could be 60s, varsity sweater could be 50s, sleeve tattoos could be 90s, etc.
Each of the things would need to be worn or carried by someone who would be working backstage at a theatre, though the item is not part of their job. I'm specifying this so that people don't suggest cars or things that can't be worn or carried easily.
Suggestions? If you've got links to photos of something specific that might not be known by its name that would also be helpful.
