Living through the depression probably sucked.

But watching the Empire State Building being built, the Chrysler building, the Hoover Dam... seeing the airplane develop, listening to early jazz, chasing flapper girls... reading about Al Capone, Lucky Luciano, Bonny & Clyde... seeing talking motion pictures for the first time... getting entertainment from something as simple as a radio... and just experiencing life where people didn't all hate each other and it was safe to walk down the street, I'd live through the Depression for that. The whole style, look, sound, and feel of the period, I'd fit right in.

I'd like to see the 1904 world's fair.

God, St Louis has turned into a ****hole since then...

We had this thread a few months ago talking about the past. Refrigerators were not even invented yet, people used ice boxes. If you got sick, you die. TV? Black and White.

Yeah, it would be cool to go back and see how things started, like having a time machine. But my gosh, I couldn't give up all the comforts we have today.

In 1920s, there were roughly 200 refrigerator models on the market, and the television wasn't even invented yet.

I don't know. The 20's? Just too many damn hats. Men in hats. Women in hats. Kids in hats.

It was good if you were rich, which fngr did imply with the Duesenberg reference. Outside of that, an incredible struggle for most.

It's very revealing about the mindset of the nation and it's citizens.
They remind you of home and hearth, huh?
