Life became sweet in 1900
Loveland built a sugar factory
beets became a commodity
worth more than gold.
Imagine life back then
no indoor plumbing, no phone, no car
America was the world’s largest agricultural producer
The Wright Brothers would take to the sky in 1903
Leo Baekeland invented plastic 1905
Mary Phelps Jacob invented the bra 1913
Gidoen Sundback invented the zipper *patented 1913
* Whitcomb Judson invented the zipper in 1876 *
Air conditioning became into existence in 1902
Radio broadcasting arrived in 1906
Electric washing machine 1907.
Imagine life back when
life was sweet
doors were unlocked, safe was the streets
folks helped each other out
my how things have changed, no doubt.
