This Is What Life In Iowa Looked Like In 1939. WOW.

Times have certainly changed, but sometimes we don’t realize just how far we’ve come in such a short amount of time. The following photos will give you a glimpse of what life was like in 1939, and they will remind you of just how different things are today, over 75 years later.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

If we have come this far in 75 years, what will life be like in another 75 years?
