Transcript of Inventions of the 1920s

Did any inventions of the 1920's have a long-lasting impact on Canada and/or the World? Inventions of the 1920's Introduction The 1920's were known as "the Roaring
Twenties". Where the 1920 events and especially inventions long-lasting to be named as "Roaring"? Well, many inventions were made in the 1920's. The World itself was greatly impacted with these inventions. Although the World was greatly impacted, Canada is also included in the World; but the inventions made in the 1920's also greatly impacted the one and only Canada! The following are some, but not all of the inventions made in the 1920's that greatly impacted both Canada and the World. Radio The radio was a great communication invention made in the 1920's. This
was a great communication invention because it was a form of entertainment for everyone to connect and unite from all over Canada and the World. Everyone knew about what happened in Canada and also what happened around the World. This was a time where everyone would put everything aside just to listen to their favourite shows. This was also made to be affordable for the everyone such as the poor or the rich. The radio back were able to do many functions across Canada but had shorter broadcasting hours and it only had AM.
The radios now, have a load more functions than before which is a
great thing for the public who like to listen to the radios. The radio now also have more commercials which means the radio can keep getting more upgraded and longer broadcasting hours. The radio now also has AM, FM and DAB 24/7. Although the radio upgraded and improved, the reaction towards has not changed throughout the public. Families are mostly always together while listening to the radio and discussing about the events among themselves about the important events.
The first radio broadcast was on May 20, 1920 and it was named as
the "Montreal Station XMA". Automobiles The first car was created in the 1920s and made by Henry Ford.The first model was produced as the Model T at a price most North Americans could afford ($365-1924). It was nicknamed "Tin Lizzy". These cars helped people move out of the city and live farther away and they caused the expansion of suburbs.

Nowadays, these cars are made well and are known to have a good engine, a good structural body and also are known for their great looks. The cars these days are also known to change and adapt themselves very easily for all the types of climates and weathers out there in the World. Without automobiles, imagine our life! We would be nothing and not to mention, but we would not be as spoiled. Although, that is true, everyone needs to accept that an automobile is really needed to get everywhere in an emergency or to go for long fun road trips. Telephone Conclusion All of these inventions were made in the historical period 1920`s. These are not all of them, there are more such as the: kleenex, bad-aid, and many more. All of these inventions greatly impacted the World and Canada. The first dial phones appeared in Toronto in 1924 and three years later the combined handset with mouthpiece and earphone on the same unit came into use. By 1929 the phone became widely used. Today's teenagers find it hard to believe there ever was a time when their ancestors didn't spend 3 hours every night gossiping on the telephone. Decades ago that would have been unthinkable. For many who grew up in a world before cell phones and text messaging, using a telephone was a means of formal communication. Because many families did not have a direct dial phone number until the 1950's or 1960's, phone calls were brief and to the point. Phone lines were shared by an entire neighborhood and someone was seemingly always waiting to place a call with the operators’ assistance. The telephone's reception range was across town, however you could call across Canada or the sea on a pay when billed basis. Works Cited 1920-1929 Ford Trucks. Digital image. HowStuffWorks.
