In general, technology made daily life easier and more fun during this time.  Some examples of this include:

  • Cars.  It was during the 1920s that car ownership truly boomed.  Cars made it easier to get around and allowed people to go more places for leisure.
  • Movies.  Movie technology improved greatly during this decade, giving people an important new source of entertainment.
  • Radio.  The first commercial radio station went on the air in 1920.  This gave people not only another entertainment option, but also a new source of news that could reach people essentially instantaneously.
