Summary
This Prelinger Archives film presents a mid-20th-century look at how patterns of family living changed from the 1880s to the 1950s. Using dramatized sequences, the film contrasts the closely integrated family of the late 19th century with the family of the Eisenhower era. The discussion explores how industrialization, urbanization, and other political and economic factors--including the advent of the automobile, factory employment, and the increased freedom of women--altered the traditional pattern of family life. Rural and urban lifestyles are both examined, as is the decline of inter-generational relationships (grandparents were important on the old family farm but are portrayed as less integral to the "modern" household).
