Table of Contents

What did normal farm, town, and city dwellers really look like between 1880 and 1940? How did they live? During this era of rapid evolution, Western nations switched from horse-drawn vehicles to airplanes, from oil lamps to electricity, and from an agricultural to an industrial-based economy. This extensively illustrated book looks at the homes, occupations, pastimes, and transportation of the times. Here are actual events and places where everyday people display their actual furniture, clothing, hairstyles, architecture, and working conditions. Using over 250 authentic and never-before-published period photographs, it is an important reference for antique and vintage fashion collectors, decorators, preservationists, and people just plain curious about this important time of change in American history.

27 color, 10 b/w, & 219 sepia photos
