What Was The Impact Of New Technologies In The 1920s
How did technology in the 1920s influence the American lifestyle?
Technology affected American lifestyles in two main ways.
First, it gave Americans more leisure time. By the 1920s, there were many more labor saving devices, particularly ones that reduced the difficulty of housework. These gave Americans more time to do things other than simply working.
Second, technology gave Americans more things to do with that newly-found spare time. The invention of radio and the boom in movies, combined with the growing availability of cars, allowed Americans to pursue a lifestyle that was much more centered around fun than it ever had been before.
