The 1930s and 1940s witnessed may things good and bad. With the depression of the 30s and
World War 2 in the 40s, the lives of many North Americans were greatly affected.
This period gave
birth to many trends and fads. Of course the emergence of pinball was the most important social
device. But I suppose there were other things also. Sportlands, endurance shows, blackouts,
war bond drives, juke boxes and juke joints - the list goes on and on.
I hope to add material to this section as time permits. Submissions are welcome.
