Something to ponder

?? THE YEAR 1907??



This will boggle your mind, I know it did mine!




The year is 1907.
One hundred years ago.

What a difference a century makes!
Here are some statistics for the Year 1907:




************************************




The average life expectancy

was 47 years.




Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub.





Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.





There were only 8,000 cars and only 144 miles




of paved roads.




The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.





The tallest structure in the world was the

Eiffel Tower!




The average wage in 1907

was 22 cents per hour.




The average worker made between $200 and $400 per year.





A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per year,
A dentist $2,500 per year, a veterinarian between $1,500 and $4,000 per year, and a mechanical engineer about $5,000 per year.





More than 95 percent of all births took place at

HOME.




Ninety percent of all doctors had

NO COLLEGE EDUCATION!



Instead, they attended so-called medical schools, many of which



were condemned in the press AND the government as "substandard."

Sugar cost four cents a pound.




Eggs were

fourteen cents a dozen.




Coffee was

fifteen cents a pound.




Most women only washed their hair

oncea month and used



Borax or egg yolks for shampoo.




Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from



entering into their country for any reason.




Five leading causes of death

were:



1. Pneumonia and influenza
2. Tuberculosis
3. Diarrhea
4. Heart disease
5. Stroke





The American flag had 45 stars.





The population of

Las Vegas, Nevada, was only 30!!!!




Crossword puzzles, canned beer, and iced tea




hadn't been invented yet.




There was no Mother's Day or Father's Day.





Two out of every 10 adults couldn't read or write.




Only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school.




Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at the local corner drugstores. Back then pharmacists said,

"Heroin clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind, regulates the stomach and bowels, and is, in fact, a perfect guardian of health."( Shocking? DUH! )




Eighteen percent of households had at least




one full-time servant or domestic help.




There were about 230 reported murders in the ENTIRE ! U.S.A. !










Try to imagine what it may be like in another 100 years.






HOW ABOUT THAT?

I received this email today and it made me think about how fast our society has developed and advanced. Thought it might be interesting to see what others think about what might happen to us in the future.
Sorry about the length and having to post three times.

unless we have two more world wars and a cold war, we wont have the same kind of technological break throughs

that is the reason for all the technology we have now, it was all developed by the army, and then made civilian after wars ended.

basicly everything we have, even jeeps, and the internet

Another 100 years and a liberal still won't do anything useful.
