These 10 Candid Photos Show What Life Was Like In New Hampshire In the 1900s

Living our lives in New Hampshire on a day-to-day basis we often forget that things weren’t always like this. Today we can hop in the car to go to the grocery store when we forget something. Or, even better, we can order it online and expect to see it within just a few days. We’ve got the internet, smart phones, smart TVs and access to things as quickly as we need them. But, life wasn’t always this way. Long before we were here, New Hampshire was just coming into its own. From new industries to new hobbies, New Hampshirites were on the brink of a new way of life. And these photos show what things were like all the way back then.

As we think about the history of New Hampshire it’s impossible to overlook that life was much different during war times. Most people have never seen these 15 photos taken during WWII in New Hampshire and they’re another reminder of what came before us to allow us to live the way we do.
