Introduction to 1900s Working Class Leisure Website
To understand the changes that took place in the early 20th century in the country's urban center, it's necessary to take a brief look at patterns of work and leisure during prior eras. Before the Industrial Revolution, the household economy was the norm. Men farmed, while women participated in tilling the soil, harvesting, canning foods, making clothes, and home schooling the children. Men and women lived and worked together, and their leisure time was spent together. The Industrial Revolution destroyed the household economy by removing these production functions, and the men, from the home. Women became separated from the work world of men, and then their world of leisure too.
