Popular Science 1924

Hi Guys and Gals!
I was researching a old speed demon this morning in a August 1924 issue of Popular Science and it struct me what a great source of information this periodical was to America. No TV, no Internet, no Facebook, no minute by minute stream of information. Once a month this information packed magazine came into the homes of scores of American's, enlightening them as to what, where, who, and how. Take a minute and scroll through the pages and imagine how informative and exciting this must have been to the masses!

Enjoy!!

Very cool indeed.

My dad once spoke of a man who committed suicide back in "the day". He left a note saying he had no will to live because there was nothing left to invent.

Too bad. He obviously had no vision of "Pop Tarts!"

Wow, it is odd how like songs NEW ideas keep coming. How could we possibly not heard every song imaginable? 12 notes, that's all there are, the same 12 notes in every song ever written, yet people come up with new ones all the time.
