1920 vs. 2020: What’s Changed (and What Hasn’t) After 100 Years

So we’re about to enter the year 2020, folks! Chew on that for a second. We are going to be starting a new decade – a nice sounding one at that. And for this special occasion, I would like to present to you with all how American life has changed in the past 100 years. A century ago, the world became a different place. It was 1920, a few years after the First World War, and the start of a decade-long period of a country-wide ban on alcohol. Fashion was changing, sports were becoming more popular, and people were going wild.
