Life 100 years ago!

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker C&C Properties

Can you imagine what life was like a hundred years ago?

So much has taken place in our world in 100 years. Here are some interesting statistics for the year 1908:

*The American Flag had only 45 stars

*The average wage in 1907 was 22 cents per hour

*Only 8% of the homes had a telephone (can you imagine)

*2 out of every 10 adults couldn't read or write

*Coffee was 15c A POUND!! Wouldn't that be nice today.

*Tallest building the world was the Eiffel Tower

*Average life expectancy was 47....today life starts at 47!

*Get this...only 14% of the homes had a bathtub - oh boy, what would we do without our bubble baths.

and one last one...

90% of all doctors had NO COLLEGE EDUCATION - imagine that!

Now think...what will life be like in 100 more years?  I know one, "MLS...what's that?"

Maria, I want to go back in time to a simpler time. No cell phones, laptops or iPods. Swings, lemonade and setting on the front porch to watch the sunset. Better for me! Great post. I hope you are not mad at me for tagging you for a MeMe? I haven't heard from you. I know you are busy, but you are such an inspiration. I hope it will be fun for you. See you soon!

Oh the good old days Jeanean...I love them too and wish our world was in many ways more like those days, but as you and I know, change is good and here we are embracing the beauty of new generations, technology and all that comes with it. And NO - I would never be mad at you (I adore you too much) I noticed you tagged me about 4 days later and I haven't had a chance to actually SIT down and write.  But I'm not ingoring it either, I promise I'll get to it this week :)
