On this website, I explore how technology was in the 1920's compared to how technology is today. I will also explore how technology relates to the award winning novel, "To Kill A Mockingbird". Additionally, I will make comparisons from family values eighty years ago to family values today. Other topics will include how we look back on the disgust of racism eighty years ago, and how eighty years in the future, humans might look back on us in disgust. After reading "To Kill A Mockingbird", beginning to end, and being assigned a research project, I choose this topic and I hope you will enjoy.
In the 1920's, with electricity becoming a rising star of the decade, technology changed many peoples lives for better, and for worse. When people first saw the car, they were unsure how to feel about them, but in the end, everyone realized that if you weighed the good against the bad of all the technological advancements, you come up with a very uneven scale. The good parts of technology just completely overtook any bad that might come from the rise of the machines. People took technology into their homes graciously, and responded very well to everything that was happening.
