This Rare Footage In The 1920s Shows Illinois Like You’ve Never Seen Before

It’s crazy to think that almost 100 years have passed since the Roaring Twenties. Illinois sure has changed since then, along with the rest of the country. But it sure is fun to look back and see how life used to be lived. Some photographs do exist but it is exceedingly rare to find video during this era. Think about it: no one had an iPhone to whip out and video technology was pretty new. So you will really enjoy this video from 1920s Chicago.

This video has everything you would want: it’s truly a day in the life. One of the best parts is the football game at the end. It is so 1920s, from the outfits to the hairstyles to the football game at the end of the movie. Here it is!

What did you think of this video? Do you have any old videos or photographs from this era?
