Ramage, the same year that Dr. Seuss was born.“The year 1904 was an important year for other reasons, too,” Ramage said. “Henry Ford began assemble line production for the Ford Motor Company and Orville and Wilbur Wright became famous after their historic airplane flight at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day By The Penny Hoarder Print Article Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By Jaine Treadwell One book, two book Around the WebDoctor: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Health VideosIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Most women only washed their hair once a month and used borax or egg yolks for shampoo. Only 8 percent of homes had a telephone. There were only 8,000 cars in the United States and only 144 miles of paved roads. The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 miles per hour.”In 1904, the average hourly wage was 22 cents an hour and the average worker made between $200 and $400 a year.“Sugar cost four cents a pound, eggs were 14 cents a dozen and coffee was 15 cents a pound,” Ramage said. “Ninety percent of our doctors had no college education and most all births took place a home.
