    This is not exactly an immigration topic. But I think you guys might find these statistics interesting. Can't help but wonder what the next hundred years has in store?

    THE YEAR 1907


    Here are some statistics for the Year 1907 :


    The average life expectancy was 47 years.

    Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub.

    Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.

    There were only 8,000 cars and only 144 miles
    of paved roads in America.

    The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.

    The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower!

    The average wage in 1907 was 22 cents per hour.

    The average worker made between $200 and $400 per year .

    A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per year,
    A doctor $2,500 per year, a veterinarian about $1,500

    More than 95 percent of all births took place at HOME .

    Ninety percent of all doctors had NO COLLEGE EDUCATION!
    Instead, they attended so-called medical schools, many of which
    Were condemned in the press AND the government as "substandard. "
    Sugar cost four cents a pound.

    Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen.

    Coffee was fifteen cents a pound.

    Most women only washed their hair once a month, and used
    Borax or egg yolks for shampoo.

    Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from
    Entering into their country for any reason.

    Five leading causes of death were:
    1. Pneumonia and influenza
    2. Tuberculosis
    3. Diarrhea
    4. Heart disease
    5. Stroke

    The American flag had 45 stars.

    The population of Las Vegas , Nevada, was only 30!!!!

    Crossword puzzles, canned beer, and ice tea
    Hadn't been invented yet.

    There was no Mother's Day or Father's Day.

    Two out of every 10 adults couldn't read or write.
    Only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school.

    Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at the local corner drugstores. Back then pharmacists said, "Heroin clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind,regulates the stomach and bowels, and is, in fact, a perfect guardian of health." ( Shocking? DUH! )

    Eighteen percent of households had at least
    One full-time servant or domestic help.

    There were about 230 reported murders in the ENTIRE ! U.S.A. !
