As a black person I'm so glad I wasn't born in the south in the 1900s 😬. Oh how far this country has come 🙏🏽

My mom was born in 1908 and my dad was born in 1901--both in Iowa. So, they were raised on farms not too far from each other. They literally lived from the era of the horse and buggy to the jet age and moon shot. There was more technological change during their lifetimes than the current generations have ever seen.

My Aunt Claris was a "flapper" in the 1920s and lived into the 1980s. She once told me that out of all the technological advances that she had seen in her lifetime, the one she could never get used to was airplane travel. To look into the sky and see an airliner fly by was just amazing. ❤

Has anyone else noticed, every generation has embrased a new style of music that drove the older generation crazy? This runs true even today.

I remember my grandfather, who was born in 1920 telling me about having to trim the wicks and filling the oil lamps in their home as a kid. He died in 2016. He saw a hell of a change in this world and not all of it for the best.
What an exceptionally profound thorough history video!

I have a set 1898 very detailed encyclopedias. They are fascinating and surprising. There were people who were very concerned about the wiping out of the buffalo which was near extinction at the time. And believe it or not they were also concerned about civil rights and the abuses of the american indian. One thing that I find very suprising is that they had figured out exactly what was needed to make motion pictures. How many frames per second and that each frame had to stop for a fraction of a second. They just hadn't been able to make a projector that could do it yet.

This is amazing. My parents' parents and went further back, were there for this time period. So awesome of you to share this. If only more people would at least watch these bits of gold on film, that still exist. Thank you for sharing <3

Awesome film footage! My late mother was born in 1908 and my late father was born in 1910 as well. We used to visit Manhattan almost ever weekend when I was growing up in the 1950s, i.e. born in 1948 before the shopping centers opened up in the suburbs so we did our shopping on the weekends and also did sightseeing! My father worked around Wall Street! I went to a fashion art school and became a professional fashion illustrator in NYC and lived and worked there in the late 1960s and into the 1970s and attended university there as well. So many changes since then. Have always loved the straw boaters the men wore back then and the fashions of the Edwardian era! The Costume Institute at the MET had a beautiful exhibition one year on all the fashions from that era, the early 1900s. My husband's family from Ukraine /Russia lived on the lower East Side in the early 1900s until they moved to Yonkers where my late father in law was a dentist. Would love to go back in a time machine to visit there and in the 1920s and 30s! During the early 1900s there was the deadly Polio pandemic, and in 1918 the Spanish flu pandemic with no vaccinations back then at all! Polio came here in 1894 and it took til the 1950s to get a vaccination against that thanks to the late great Dr. Jonas Salk! And we had a small pox epidemic as well and got our much needed vaccinations for that as well, all mandated or we couldn't go to school! Our children also had to be vaccinated against highly contagious diseases in the 1980s as well mandated or they couldn't go to school as well. Thanks for taking us down Memory Lane!
So interesting to see how many of us have wonderful stories of our families' past and their experiences! I too, am a major history fanatic! I should have studied American Family History in school!
A sweeping overview of the 1st decade of the 20th century. Love all the archival film footage.
My great grandfather came to America from Greece in the early 1900’s. Came to Wisconsin where he eventually settled and it’s fascinating to see what he would’ve seen in New York when he came here…history is just the best!!

Man, I can't understand why people don't like or appreciate history. It's so freaking interesting. We literally have pretty much the history of the entire world at or fingertips in seconds if we needed it. Plus you're gonna be killer at trivia games 💀

Well done! Definitely brings the last 100 years of American / world history alive. Wish I could have seen this when I was in high school.
My Great-Grandmother was born in 1903 and died in 1999 when I was still in middle school. The degree of change she saw in her lifetime is unprecedented in all of human history. The 20th Century eclipsed even the 19th in terms of technological progress and world-shattering events and upheavals! I wish I could have had a good long talk with her but I was only a lad when she died.
I love learning about history, as far back as it goes. My Grandpa was born in 1908, he was the youngest out of 3, and my Grandma was born 1919, there were 8 kids and she's about number 5 or 6 child from 8 kids. When I was a kid growing up in the early 1970s, my Grandpa use to tell me things when he was young. I myself was born 1966 and about the age of 3 years old, I remember becoming close to my Grandpa. My Dad and his two sisters, one older than my Dad and the other younger than him, we all were born old you can say. Love watching old classic movies, love the 1940s Big Band sound of music. So anything I find on TRshow about the early 1900s, I just got to watch.

My Dad took, with a “Box Brownie” camera, black and white photos of Hiroshima two weeks after they dropped the bomb. I remember looking at those pictures over and over as a child, fascinated by them. Now I wonder how the film was not affected by the radiation to get these pic’s. Yet my dad’s teeth all dropped out one by one and he was the baldest man I ever knew. Years later we realised it was the radiation exposure. But those photos survived and have now been gifted to the Returned Soldiers League (RSL.)
It is a shame what the Urban League and NAACP has become! The people of that day had a real struggle and I respect the heck out of them for making it through! People have since profited from and abused the organization that once sought to truly help!

My great grandfather was 4 years old when he came to this country with his father through Ellis island from Italy in 1896. They came on a ship called the Alsatia. They immigrated to New Jersey where there is good farm land and created a very nice life here from nothing. I am forever grateful for the hard work they put in for us.
