Have you ever wanted to take a step back in time just to see what a tiny slice of life was like for those in previous generations? Thankfully the internet is full of videos for people to satisfy whatever curiosity they have.

I'm a HUGE history buff, especially local history. Being that I just moved to the area a few months ago, I know little to nothing about the Eastern Iowa Corridor, but I am enjoying researching and learning.

I found this video during some of my research, and I thought you would like to peek through this window to nearly eight decades in the past.
