Oh how my life has changed, but it is not just my life it is everyone’s now with all this inventing going on the things we have today are so different then when I was growing up.
In 1861 when I was a child we lived in poor little run down shacks of wood on dirt streets with no iceboxes to keep our food from spoiling, we had to keep our food in cellars or in running streams in ...view middle of the document...
These kids think they have it bad, well I wish they were around to see what all we had compared to what they have today. The Morse code for example we didn’t have that but they do and they can send messages to people all over the country. They have iceboxes which also mean they have fresh food for weeks. They have running water in the house so no more running to the well to get fresh water. Bathrooms in the house, no more running outside late at night to use the bathroom. The time is changing so much. An industrial revolution is happening right before my eyes. Things are being produced more rapidly and efficiently. Factories are hiring large amounts of workers which means a lot of new houses are being built. There are apartments for people who don’t need houses and large housing facilities for people with large families.
Our lives are changing so much that I hardly get to see my wife, I come in from the factory, eat and go to bed to get up early in the morning to head off to work again.
