100 years makes a lot of difference

Check out this link for some interesting trivia facts about life in the US in 1904. The average life expectancy was 47 years. Coca-cola had real cocaine in it, and heroin and marijuana were available over the counter!

That is very interesting Sister. I really liked the fact about Coca-Cola hvaing cocaine, not because there was a drug in it, but the fact that my gradnparents sell and collect Coca-Cola items and needless to say thats all the type of pops that are in the fridge!!!!
