87 Year Old Farmer Talks About The Good Old Days in 1929

Check out this neat little video that is too cool to watch. The video is from 1929 and it features an 87-year-old farmer in Catskill, New York, talking about the good old days, but he’s also hopeful about the future. It’s fascinating to see and hear how the old-timers in 1929 saw the world.

We live in a world of change. The trees are just the same as the one when I was a boy only larger. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west but when I was a boy we didn’t have the telegraph and we didn’t have the telephone of course not the electric license and uh any of these other things which have come up to bother us and help us…it’s all right but then the good old days were pretty good.
