This was neat, I was going to say the same thing Christeen said (would send green star to you but I already did and cannot) but its true, back then we cared more about each other so there was truly a greater community spirit and perhaps a better outlook toward life. I think life was more simple back then, full of hard work yes, but less complex in the important ways (family, values, etc).

There is no period that can match the building during this period. The glass and chrome horrors built in NYC in the 80's are simply that -horrors. Clothing was exceptional. The main issue 1899 lacked was medical, as well as dental knowledge.People suffered so for decades. As medical knowledge was so limited, morphine addicts were not uncommon.
