hehe :> Many early planes were not very accomidating Flight Attendants made air travel much easier Many boats were made for the army during this time period Several fishing boats were put out of operation because of the lowered cost of fish
In the 1930's 50% of people owned cars. Many cars during the time period were made for transportation, not for looks. At the end of the 30's World War 2 began and the railroads use switched from passenger cars to hospital cars. Mail service during this period was transferred from the trains to the new buses. i. “The Ford's most common variant, the 5AT, introduced in 1928, accommodated 13 passengers in its earliest model and was modified to seat up to 17. With no air conditioning and little heating, the plane was hot in summer and cold in winter, and with no circulation system, its environment was made even more unpleasant by the smell of hot oil and metal, leather seats, and disinfectant used to clean up after airsick passengers.”
ii. “But on May 15, 1930, everything changed when Boeing Air Transport introduced the first female flight attendants. These women, called air stewardesses, attempted to make passengers more comfortable, offering them water, a sandwich, and sometimes chewing gum to help relieve ear discomfort.”

i. “During World War II, Chris-Craft built some 12,000 small patrol boats, utility launches and rescue vehicles for the United States Navy and Army. Some Chris Craft boats saw service on D-Day (6 June 1944), landing allied troops on the beaches in Normandy.”
ii. “The line boats just as suddenly dropped out of the fishery because the lowered price offered for fish reduced their income to below the cost of operation

i. “Fifty percent of families in the U.S.A. own cars.”
ii. “At the beginning of the 1930’s cars almost universally were made to a four square design that was nothing if not boring.”
i. “Mail Service was transferred from the train to the bus line in 1930.”
ii. “The hospital line continued to operate long after the main branch closed to passengers in 1930. The hospital trains were now timed to connect with bus services at Grimsargh.”
