    When? Where?

    What does your book say?

  • Social Studies (Ms. Sue) -

    I believe my textbook is referring to the time of mass culture in the 1800s.

    *era

    I can tell you what happened to my grandfather about 1915.

    He owned a furniture store in a small town in Indiana. He sold furniture to about everyone in town. Then, people began to buy automobiles, and they went to a larger town a few miles away for their shopping. Many people abandoned my grandfather's store.

    This is one example of technology changing the way people bought goods.

    My answer: New technologies changed the way people bought goods by being able to transport them quicker and with less difficulty, which caused people to purchase goods more frequently.

  • Social Studies (Ms. Sue) -

    Which technologies enabled people to transport goods more quickly?

  • Social Studies (Ms. Sue) -

    Do you suppose my answer is accurate?

  • Social Studies (Ms. Sue) -

    Aircraft was mainly the transportation which transported goods.

  • Social Studies (Ms. Sue) -

    No! No!

    In the 1800s, aircraft hadn't even been invented. The Wright Brothers made the first flight in 1903, but it wasn't until about 1950 that aircraft began to be used to transport many passengers or much freight.

    What method of transportation was new in the 1800s?

  • Social Studies (Ms. Sue) -

    Rural free delivery, established by the post office, which brought packages directly to homes in rural areas?

  • Social Studies (Ms. Sue) -

    Ms. Sue?

    RFD started in 1896. I don't think that had much to do with how people bought things.

    Railroads?

  • Social Studies (Ms. Sue) -

    Yes!!!!!! :-)

  • Social Studies (Ms. Sue) -

    My answer: New technologies changed the way people bought goods by being able to transport them by railroads quicker and with less difficulty, which caused people to purchase goods more frequently.

  • Social Studies (Ms. Sue) -

    OK.

  • Social Studies (Ms. Sue) -

    Do you suppose my answer could be improved?

  • Social Studies (Ms. Sue) -

    Not really. You've answered the question well.
