Time Travel

Behold these color photographs of Americans in the early 1940s doing what Americans do best: square dancing, sharecropping, homesteading, Rosie-the-riveting and basically embodying the true spirit of any High Society. TSHS are indebted to these people for the invention of Family Dinner, Co-Ops and even Wisdom, itself.  It might not have been a good time for poetry (Brecht), but it makes for a great time travel destination.
