dinnerHave you ever wondered what shopping for dinner was like without the shopping cart? Or how your current grocery bill compares to that of the 1920s? In the 1920s, foodways were on the edge of revolutionary change, as industrial and household technologies were about to transform what, and how, America ate. Join historian Dr. Geoff Hunt as we explore grocery shopping and American diets in the Roaring Twenties.
