This Is What Life In Delaware Looked Like In The 1920s. WOW.

The Roarin’ Twenties were a time of prosperity in the United States. Coming down from a victory in World War I and right on the heels of establishing our nation as a true super power, Americans were patriotic, hard-working, and happy. Everyday life was simple, especially in small, close knit towns in Delaware. Take a look at what life looked like in Delaware in the 1920s, and see how it compares to today. There were no Ubers, no smartphones, and no Wikipedia – just Fords and ponies, Main Street, and the town library.
