Found a great web site, rense.com, it tells about what America was like 100 years ago:

The average life expectancy in the U.S was 47 years.

Only 14 per cent of homes in the U.S. had bathtubs.

Only 8 per cent of home had a telephone.

A three minute call from Denver to New York City cast 11 dollars.

The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower.

The average wage in the United States was 14 cents an hour.

More than 95 per cent of birth in the U.S. took place at home.

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