Relaxing, 1922 style

I still think old ads are one of the best ways to see what life used to be like back in the day.

--The Colville Examiner (Colville, WA) March 25, 1922

Imagine going out and buying a record for the night's entertainment. Just a few years later, people would imagine relaxing by the radio, not the Victrola. And a few decades after that, people would watch a black-and-white TV with the family. Now I relax with the TV on and hanging out online.

I also have trouble imagining a day when women had to do the backbreaking work of laundry once a week!
