The 1920s heralded an era of social and political changes in our country. For the first time since the formation of America more people lived in cities than on farms. Radios and home appliances were frequent additions to households, and Henry Ford’s Model T, priced at $260 in 1924, made travel more convenient.
In 1925, Sears Roebuck opened its first store in Chicago and penicillin was discovered in 1928.
To the dismay of many, American culture also changed in the Roaring ‘20s and was considered to take on a new urban and less moral direction.
