Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525941053, Hardcover)

A nostalgic look back at what life was like in America at the turn of the century captures a world in which only four states had given women the right to vote, the Statue of Liberty was only fifteen years old, and women could be arrested for smoking on New York streets.
