Description

In the summer of 1900, Leigh Rutledge's grandmother celebrated her eighth birthday. She grew up in an America that has long since vanished.Now, in this charming, warmly nostalgic book, Leigh Rutledge takes us on a wonderful journey to that fascinating era to show what it was like "When My Grandmother Was a Child...."Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, both in their mid-thirties, were hiding out in South America. Only four states had given women the right to vote. The annual federal budget for the United States was $550 million, and there was no deficit, no income tax, no IRS. In New York City women could be arrested for smoking in public. The Statue of Liberty was only fifteen years old. H. G. Wells predicted that homes would soon be equipped with electric central heating, air-conditioning, vacuum cleaners, and other labor-saving amenities. Just thirty people lived in a desert town called Las Vegas. And a chocolate sundae cost ten cents.show more
