THE YEAR IS 1915

 

This will boggle your mind!

 

The year is 1915 “One hundred years ago”. What a difference a century makes!

 

Here are some statistics for the Year 1915:

 

The average life expectancy for men was 47 years.

 

Fuel for cars was sold in chemists only.

 

Only 14 percent of the homes had a bath.

 

Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.

 

The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.

 

The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower.

 

The average British wage in 1915 was £15 per year!

 

A competent accountant could expect to earn £800 per year.

 

A dentist £900 per year.

 

A vet between £600 and £900 per year.

 

And, a mechanical engineer about £2000 per year.

 

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

 

Ninety percent of all Doctors had no university education!

 

Instead, they attended so-called medical schools, many of which were condemned in the press AND the government as "substandard."

 

Sugar cost two pence a pound.

 

Eggs were 10 pence a dozen.

 

Coffee was five pence 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.

 

The Five leading causes of death were:

 

1. Pneumonia and influenza

2. Tuberculosis

3. Diarrhoea

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 iced tea hadn't been invented yet.

 

There was neither a Mother's Day nor a Father's Day.

 

Two out of every 10 adults couldn't read or write and, only 6 percent of all British pupils went to university.

 

Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at local corner chemists.

Back then chemists said, "Heroin clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind, regulates the stomach, bowels, and is, in fact, a perfect guardian of health!" (Shocking?)

 

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.! In 2014 this figure had risen to 14,249.

 

In the UK the murder rate in 1915 was 1420. In 2015 it was 537. (Perhaps we are doing something right!)

 

I am now going to forward this to someone else without typing it myself.

 

From there, it will be sent to others all over the WORLD all in a matter of seconds!

 

Can you imagine what it may be like in another 100 years?
