by Mitch Battros - Earth Changes Media

The year is 1907. One hundred years ago. What can happen in just one century---







* The average life expectancy was 47 years.

* Only 14% of the homes had a bathtub.

* Only 8% of the homes had a telephone.

* There were only 8,000 cars and only 144 miles of paved roads.

* The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.

* The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower.

* The average wage in 1907 was 22 cents per hour.

* The average worker made between $200 and $400 per year.

* A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per year, a dentist $2,500 per year, a veterinarian between $1,500 and $4,000 per year, and a mechanical engineer about $5,000 per year.

* More than 95 percent of all births took place at home.

* Sugar cost four cents a pound.

* Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen.

* Coffee was fifteen cents a pound.

* Most women only washed their hair once a month, and used Borax or egg yolks for shampoo.

* Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from entering into their country for any reason.

* Five leading causes of death were: 1. Pneumonia and influenza 2. Tuberculosis 3. Diarrhea 4. Heart disease 5. Stroke

* The American flag had 45 stars.

* The population of Las Vegas, Nevada was only 30.

* Crossword puzzles, canned beer, and ice tea hadn't been invented yet.

* There was no Mother's Day or Father's Day.

* Two out of every 10 adults could not read or write. Only 6 % of all Americans had graduated from high school.

* Marijuana, Heroin, and Morphine were all available over the counter at the local corner drugstores. Back then pharmacists said, "Heroin clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind, regulates the stomach and bowels, and is, in fact, a perfect "guardian of health."

* Eighteen percent (18%) of households had at least one full-time servant or domestic help.

* There were about 230 reported murders in the entire U.S.A.
