  1. Maria, Jess, John -- or whatever other name you're using -- please don't change names for each question.

    The basic change was the usual differences between the current generation and their parents and grandparents.

    My mother was 15 in 1920. Women got to vote for the first time that year. She and her friends were also the first women to cut their hair short, wear short skirts, and wear pants. It's natural that the people of her parents' generation to be scandalised by the dress, dances, movies, and music of the 20s.

    About the same time, her father, who owned a prosperous furniture store in a small town, lost a lot of this business because cars now made it easy for people to drive to larger towns to shop.
