They Would Be Better Off Today

What are you driving at? Things are way better today in this country compared to 1908 when this photo was taken. Unless, of course, you think child labor, poor health care and little or no education is a good thing.

Gee I wonder what these

Gee I wonder what these young Americans would think about what has became of their country?

[Or even what has become of it. - Dave]

Great site!

I love the site and I can't get enough of all the pictures! Keep it up, PLEASE!!

[Thanks. We'll try! - Dave]
