1939 book of knowldge

I scanned this from a 1939 copy of the New Wonder Book of Knowledge and thought I would share it with you.  It clearly shows that at that time, before World War II and at what we know now was the end of the Great Depression, that there were amazing technological advances, with many people still using the “old way”.

Farming-horse and tractor

On the road- horse, electric and gasoline driven

Air travel-dirigible and biplane

The list goes on….take some time and study it and then share it with a kid….we need to remember that all we are used to is very very recent.
