The 1940s – The way it was

by Marie on February 21, 2011

This 10 minute video is a brief history of life in America in the ’40s and how WWII affected the lives of those living here (friend and foe). You’ll smile at the way it was then and how different it is now, including radio, TV, movies, sports, etc. It also shows how women who supported the war effort (by filling the vacated factory jobs left by the men who enlisted in military service) got their 1st taste of independence. Even the background music will take you backĀ  in time. Enjoy!
