In the early 1900s, most people were entertained through theater and live shows. Few were privileged to enjoy a night out at the movies (and between you and me, the cinemas were not all that great back in the day). The sound was poor, the seats were uncomfortable and the variety of movies to watch, well… it was no Netflix.
These days, the VIP cinema rooms are more comfortable than the sofa you have at home, the dishes offered on the menu cover more than just popcorn, and the variety is endless. They are even re-launching old movies with new technology so the choices are there, you just have to make one.
Mail (or Post)
So very many years ago, the most common way to send mail, was via a mailman. Mailboxes were scattered all over the streets, the mailman would empty it twice a day, and then off it went to be sorted and delivered. The old-fashioned mailbox can still be seen today, however, only a few are still in use.
Some mail is still used by the traditional way of posting but as the years go by, everyone is shifting to online communication. All you need is a device (computer, tablet, smartphone), an email account, and a message to send. Life has never been easier.
Penicillin was introduced to the world halfway through the 21st century. Up until then, even the smallest wound needed the most complicated treatment. The medication offered usually involved herbs, plants, and anything the pharmacists could get their hands on. It consists of home remedies and basic elements that were unheard of.
Thanks to modern science, medicine today is advanced and the introduction of penicillin to the world changed the rules of the game. Although not all medical conditions can be fully treated, the transformation it has gone through over the years has changed human life forever and will continue to.
In the 1920s, the blow dryer made its way into women's homes. Up until then, only salons would provide such services and only the rich could afford it. One of the first designs of the manual blowdryer was metal-made, heavy, too hot, too strong, and kind of scary looking.
The 21st century brings us blowdryers that can do much more than just dry your hair. It has hot air functions, cold air functions, low speed, high speed, curly hair, straight hair, and the list goes on and on. So, if you're unhappy with your curls, or want to give your straight hair a bright and shiny look, there is no need to go to an exclusive salon anymore.
This next one is going to be a little hard to digest, and if there is one reason for being thankful for not being born before modern devices kicked in, it has to be this. So, basically, the toilets back then were for one use and one use only. To say the least, they were not the most comfortable place to be in, and as soon as you were in, all you wanted to do is get out.
Today, modern toilet rooms have turned into the most popular room in the house. Toilet seats can be found heated, round, squared, attached to the floor or the wall, they come in a variety of colors, and, let's face it, it's the quietest and calmest space in the house.
